Wool Applique Foxglove Pillow...


I decided to make a pillow from my Foxglove design.
It measures 16in. x 16in. (40.64cm x 40.64cm)


I placed a Scalloped Blanket Stitch around the 'panel' 
in a shade to compliment the flowers.
I trimmed the edge in a Beaded Blanket Stitch in shades of Pink and Coral.


The back of the pillow is a Taupe and Cream Houndstooth, 
the same as the 'panel' that the Foxglove are appliqued onto.

This was a fun and fast project to work up.
No sewing machine is needed.  All the work is done by hand.
