Ballerina Pillow Project - Part Nine Finish!


Remember this ballerina pillow project?  I just finished putting the finishing touches on it!

Since my last post on this project, I sewed the front and back together - leaving a small open space and I stuffed the pillow with poly-fill. 


Then I sewed the opening shut:  



Next,  I made three bows out of this velvet ribbon trim. 


I hand sewed them across the top of the pillow:


Here is the finished front:



and the back.  I think it looks good standing up


or lying flat:


I recorded all my floss colors in my embroidery journal.  Looking at this journal page, I am surprised to see I started this little project way back on May 12 2004 :)


Here is the color palette for this project:
