Pillows for a new Mr. and Mrs.

Pillows for a new Mr. and Mrs.

Today was all about completing a project.  It’s always a good day when I can mark a project off the list!  Today’s project was embroidered pillows for a special young lady who is getting married next month.  She brought the fabrics to me and then said she wanted the pillows to be very simple with script lettering.  No braid?  No fringe?  No fancy embellishment?  I couldn’t have that!  So I embroidered the lettering and then made piping to “frame” the pillows.  Easy peasy!  I used the cording foot on my Pfaff sewing machine and it made the project so much easier.  Don’t have a cording foot?  Just use a zipper foot.  It allows you to stitch close to the cording.

These two pillows will be used during the wedding for photos.  Sitting on a garden bench, everyone will know that their union is official.  It will be the stuff of memories!
