The pillow applique was inspired by a change purse on Fred Flare.com.

I made this pillow for the Gilmore Girls Swap (cause Rory loves Russian authors -- a stretch, I know Wink ). There were only 8 of us in the swap though so I thought I would make a separate post for this. I really love how it came out. Cheesy


I am in the process of making another one in different colors.

Here's one I did for a private swap with Lrschic. Thanks for posting pictures!



And here's another that I made in the Matrioshka Swap for my partner SuzukiBeane33!



Thanks for looking!!

I think this is cuteums as well. But as some one who is only up to the begining of season 3, I don;t get how its GG related? Just because its adorable and you want to smash it close to you?  Huh  really though, ADORABLE!!!

Wow. Thanks so much guys for the positive responses! Cheesy It didn't get much notice on the swap board. Glad to know it wasn't because it wasn't cute.

Weeeell, it's a stretch.  Grin I just made it because I think that Matrioshka dolls are so cute and Rory loves reading Russian authors/novels. Not exactly a direct connection.

Actually, the one I"m working on now will still be stuffed -- but its going to be shaped like a doll. Wink

My pillow making skills aren't the best (this is my first) but I could probably put something together on how to make the doll. I'll think about how to lay it out. Someone else might be able to comment on the tute and give me a better way to put it together -- which would be helpful for me too. Smiley
