Take a Rest
I'm a sucker for certain animal textiles.
This Echino Chelsea by Etsuko Furuya lion in the garden print stole my heart.
Check out these flowers. Is that a bird? Orange bushes? Pink bugs!"
As I tried to walk away, it asked, "How handsome is my Lion?"
I balanced out the Echino's bright bright brightness with some Kona Stone, and some ecru machine and hand-stitching. They've all got a layer of cotton batting underneath for structure and extra cushion.
put an invisible zipper in a pillow! Not that hard!
Elizabeth Hartman's mod mosaic method, I switched up typical values to make a smaller 12x16 inch companion pillow for those lions. Instead of using colorful scraps with white "tile grout" sashing, I used pieces of Kona Snow with turquoise sashing (I think it's Aqua from Connecting Threads and totally on sale right now).
