My second pillow is the one with the most complicated sewing on it. I had no idea what I was doing but I figured it couldn't be that hard.
I wanted the 3 different fabrics to look like the stairs in the Alpha Stamps image, this one is from Midnight #1.
In the upper left hand corner I placed a triangle of the dark, what I dubbed, bushes, fabric.
I stamped the pocket watch on and added the hands to look like it is just before midnight...it wasn't until afterwards that I realized I should have set them a little after midnight...Cinderella is already in her rags again...oh well...
The silver ribbon is sewed down and I think I did a pretty good job with the bow...bows are my arch enemy.
I learned a lot about sewing with this pillow...
And last but not least, my favorite! Although when I started the project I thought this one was going to be the one that did not come together. I had all these extra things I was going to do to make it look "better" and I ended up not doing a single one of them.
The image is from the Alpha Stamps Collage Sheet Midnight #1. The stamp is a fun swirl that is by Autumn leaves. I stamped it repeatedly in brown ink that has been heat set and will not wash away.
Before the stamping the green color I selected was far from my favorite...but the brown toned it down wonderfully and it is a perfect match to the image. I could not bring myself to buy anything purple...I loath that color. That didn't leave me much to work with.
After learning how to attack the trim on Pillow number 1 this trim took no time at all.
I hope she likes them...b/c if she doesn't I am going up to her place and bringing them back. I am having a very hard time wrapping them up.
Thanks for looking...hope you are having a wonderful holiday!
