Just saw the post from my partner that the Lizzie Kate I stitched for her arrived. This was the project where I was wondering, do I do something that may match her decor, or do I do what suits the piece better? I went with suits the piece. If she really hates it, it’s cute enough to re-gift IMHO.
It’s a cushion cover. Approx 16″ square. Approx because I suck at sewing. rofl But pillows are forgiving things by nature so it should all be good. Those big ol’ buttons are from one of those ubiquitous “Dress It Up” buttons packs that seem to be breeding in people’s craft closets across the country. I had my choice of colors, yellow, green, orange, pink, and purple. I went with the yellow & green because they were the cloest match to the polka dots and those colors were also repeated in the cross stitch. I used the kit fabric & tiny yellow buttons from LK’s Big Girl Panties for the cross stitch.
And here it is with one corner flipped back so you can see the backing fabric. I finished it just like my Christmas pom-pom pillows, the super easy overlapped style back. I also sent along Brittercup’s Varisty Pets which was on Chris’s wishlist and $10 to buy the pillow form. Because seriously – I’m not paying more to mail the thing than it costs to buy.
