Ballerina Pillow Project - Part Eight

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!
