These were inspired by the current cover of Stitch magazine.  We have needed new throw pillows for our sofa since we got it and I finally got motivated!  They are a mixture of hand embroidery and free motion quilting and made with a mixture of wool felt and ecofelt.

And a group shot - there is actually 1 more that didn't make the picture.  It is very similar to the linen one with the large circles except it is green corduroy.

Thanks for looking!

The pillows look great mimiw!  So bright and cheery!  I can only imagine the time it took to handstitch the circles!

Really cute!  You did a great job.  I keep looking at that project and trying to decide if I want to tackle it.  Thank you for sharing your work.   Smiley

These pillows are so cute. Maybe once I get my apartment completely cleaned out, I tackle a project like this one. Wisting!

As always, great workmanship!  I always enjoy your color combos as well.  As L2E said, your hand embroidery must have taken some time!  Nice work!
