Whenever I do a swap, I have so much fun brainstorming, I usually end up biting off a little more than I probably should with the confined timeframe.  Such was the case with the Chocoholics Unanimous Round 4 swap.  The guidelines were for a medium, 2 smalls, and of course chocolate.  My medium ended up being more like an extra-large in terms of time (doh) but I wanted to keep it after I finished it, so I figure I did a good job.  My partner katcal has graciously agreed to let me use her photos so I present the embroidered ribbon pillow o chocolate



I got the ribbon pillow idea from the tutorial here and then thought about how to make it chocolate-y.  I found a free pattern after a search on the internet (I have been Googling like crazy to find it with no luck so please let me know if youve seen it and Ill be happy to give credit), and thought it would make a cute pillow center.  What took me so long is that I decided I didnt like the look of the plain aida cloth on the non-stitched portions, so I cross stitched the entire "empty" background in white.  Insane, yes.  Smiley  Insanity here:



I then framed the cross stitch piece with fabric and wove ribbons around the whole thing.  I top stitched the ribbon around the cross stitched piece so there would be no slippage.  And with that bit done, I otherwise followed the ribbon pillow tute.  

I have been meaning to make myself one just havent gotten to it yet.  Thats the thing with swaps you get so caught up in them that you dont get your own sewing done.  Cheesy
