Ha ha... That picture is hilarious.  I think everything you knit is amazing!  I'm going to make a few of those to match my bedroom color scheme.

That is so pretty. I wish I had another comment, but that pretty much sums it up.  Smiley

Edit: OK, after looking at the rest of the thread, I have another comment: I want a baby alpaca. Like, now.

awww  I love love love the twining trees motif.  I really want to put that on something sometime in my life.

I think it's great you're giving the pillow to Ben Lee.  I'm sure he'll love it.
You know, if his little buddy Ben Kweller would ever come back here, I would definitely knit something for him.  I know he's expressed interest in a fan-knitted something before.

The alpaca is such a beautiful shade of green and it's very complimentary with the pattern.  Fabulous job!

How did you attach the crocheted border to the fabric backing?

Thanks again, everyone!

How did you attach the crocheted border to the fabric backing?

I had some really strong gold thread that is meant to sew denim jeans and I chose a yarn that matched it. Then I crocheted around the green square, making sure it was a little larger than the pillow form. Then I took my rose fabric, folded about a 1/4 inch over and proceeded to whipstitch the fabric to the crocheted edging. It shows a bit on the fabric side, but I don't mind too much. It makes it look homemade, which is a good thing in my opinion!
