Here's a pillow I made for my mom. I'm really new to sewing (I only learned how so that I would have more flexibility in embroidering) so it's pretty basic. I found the embroidery pattern on Needlecrafter, and the pillow was kind of built around it.

Here's the front:



The back - it's a basic envelope style, which bought me some time before I have to learn how make a buttonhole  Wink:



And detail of the embroidery:



Hope you like!

The embroidery is stunning. And if you're new to sewing I never would have guessed. This is a beautiful piece all around.

What a pretty embroidery design, and your stitching is really nice. I think you did a wonderful job of turning your embroidery into a pillow.

Super pretty!  I love the colors...did you embroider first or choose the flip-side fabric first?  Either way, Perfection!!
