and my 1st giveaway winner

embroidered  pillow

2 - 20" squares of fabric
2 skeins of pearl cotton
embroidery hoop
large crewel needle
20" invisible zipper (optional)
20" pillow form

  • choose your favorite font "&" and enlarge to about 6-8".  trace with water soluble pen onto fabric front.  place fabric in embroidery hoop.
  • fill in the monogram with "colonial knots" as shown above using 4 strands of  pearl cotton.

  • i put in an invisible zipper.  they are very easy if you follow the instructions in the zipper package and use an invisible zipper foot.
  • you can also leave an opening along one side.  insert pillow form and whip stitch closed.
it took me a little over an hour to do the candlewicking (colonial knots).
