Hi all Craftsters!

Do you remember my first loom test, with that nice pattern and that wool fabric I did?

No? ok, there's the link:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343793.0

I used that fabric to make two pillows.

here how they turned out:

first one (easy)
done with a very dry cotton-linen fabric


back side (ehm, I don't have some good wooden buttons, and it's sunday)



second one (a little harder)
done entirely with  linen fabric


back side, same technique, same lack: no stem wooden buttons in my case



action shot



see my flickr for better (and other) images:

Hope you like them!
thanks for looking

bless

I like them both.  I remember seeing your first post as well and thinking how much I liked the fabric you created.  Great job.

They're so cool! And I'm jealous of your loom.  Cheesy

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
