My fantastic friend, Pam, stitched up this Bigfoot Lives Here cross stitch for me!  You may recognize it from her post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422466.msg5014514#msg5014514

We both thought that I'd frame it and hang it, but then I got the idea to make it a pillow!  She approved and I went to it.



As you can see, I framed it (note the mitered corners) AND pillowed it!  POW!  It is just right for my guest room bed and I think having it on the bed highlights her amazing stitching skills way more than if it were hung on the wall with our other art.



I lined the front with white muslin to keep the cross stitch looking bright and backed with the same faux bois print that I used to make the "frame

I just love how it all come together so much!  I was worried that I'd not make something worthy of the stitchery.  Whew!
