Cross-stitch pillow

Little pillow for one of my granddaughters.  I read Vonna Pfeiffer’s finishing tutorial, but didn’t execute it as well as I would like.  I need a lot more practice. Vonna’s instructions are clear and excellent, but I improvised and screwed up there.  I used felt instead of interfacing, because I found white felt in my sewing room before I located interfacing.  That led to bulky seams.  On the plus side I used some frilly yarn to make my own trim for around the pillow and some sparkly yarn from some packs of yarn “bon bons” I purchased a year or so ago to make the hanger and tassel.

Here’s is the link to Vonna’s pillow tutorial (and next time I will follow her instructions more closely): http://tts-learntofinish.blogspot.com/2011/09/pillow-ornament.html

The design is by Kooler Design Studio and it came as a complete kit, with white 14-count Aida fabric, floss, and needle.  It is an artiste mini brand at my local Hobby Lobby.
