I finished my Friendly Felines!

It almost did not happen. I ran out of the color for the backstitching one strand away from the end! Can you believe?! So I took it out of the Qsnap, and off to Joann's we went to get the thread to finish and the fabric to make it into a pillow.

I picked a brown fabric that I thought would look nice, but since I always second guess myself, I asked another lady in the store if she thought the fabric I picked would look good with the piece. I was so happy when she said she liked it, but then she mentioned that I might also like to get an orange, and make the pillow with an orange band and then the brown. Now, I had been flipping between an orange fabric and the brown. So I ran and grabbed the orange and I was thrilled when she said she thought it would look great.

So, I'm going to try to make the pillow with a band of orange and a band of brown. If anyone knows of a good tutorial, please share. This is definitely going to be a challenge, but I'm excited for it.

Now I really have to start working on Lobo... He has definitely been a little neglected lately.


  1. Congratulations on your Happy Dance - your cats look very happy. Great choice on your backing fabric.

  2. Well done on your finish which looks fabulous - I knew you could do it. Can't help with a tutorial but those fabrics will certainly enhance your stitching :)

  3. YAY I knew you would finish it! It looks great. I love those fabrics you picked too. Can't wait to see Lobo next.

    This site has the basics for finishing small pillows and you might be able to go from there but you can always search Pinterest for some great ideas! Good luck
