The ballerina pillow is just about finished! The only steps left are filling the pillow and adding the trim.
Since my last post on this project, I put the front and back pillow panels together and determined the final pillow size. It is going to be approximately 13" x 8".
I pinned the two panels with the right sides together
and then cut off the excess fabric on all four sides. I sewed the two panels together, leaving about a 2" opening on one edge to turn the pillow right side out.
Once I fill the pillow, I will hand stitch this gap closed.
My last step will be to embellish the pillow with this beautiful green velvet trim.
I am really looking forward to finishing this up!
