dot pillows














i just finished these throw pillow covers for my couch. i had two older 16" square pillows sitting in my closet & instead of getting rid of them, i decided to make covers. i've had the idea in mind for quite some time; i was inspired by these from purl bee. i used a chocolate brown velvet to cut a 16" version of this pattern. i then embroidered the dot color bursts; i learned how to do the embroidery using this french knot tutorial from purl bee as well. they look very nice next to my amy butler pillows too!

sorry the pictures are so crumbing, i need ming to start shooting my projects.
