I love the rough, chunky, hand-hewn look that you get from the raw edges and using 6 or twelve strands of the floss. And I am TOTALLY in love with all the color!
I started out sewing the completed pillows together by hand, but then tried it by machine using a zig zag stitch and decided I liked that better. It does flatten them out a bit at the seams but I kind of like it that way.
Not sure what this is going to be . . . a bag? . . . a bookcover/journalcover? . . . a pillow? Let's just see where it leads. I am just enjoying the hand stitching with embroidery thread - very easy and relaxing.
More little "pillows" awaiting stitching!
