I am putting together all the elements for a summer-y pillow.I already have the front panel embroidered:Here is a close up of the color combination of white, yellow, purple and green:I embroidered the front panel on this nice big piece of yellow fabric. The fabric measures 21-1/2" x 40" - so it should be more than big enough to make a pillow - but at the rate this fabric frays...
I think I want to add some trim
If I do add trim, I have narrowed my choice to these three candidates - the wide ribbon in the picture above is just too wide:
This first one is beautiful, I love the little loop edging on both sides of this ribbon but I don't really know how to incorporate it into a pillow: This second candidate is a nice size and is streamlined with no frills:
The third one, this pom-pom trim is actually my favorite, but I think it may be too big and busy. I think it will depend on the finished dimensions of the pillow.
I am also going to embroider the back panel of the pillow with one of these border patterns:
A lot of decisions to make! I will post on my progress - any suggestions are appreciated!
