Stitch An Inch Spring Orni Day #6

Stitch An Inch Spring Orni
This little pillow was made with no particular size in mind. I placed my fabric on the table with  the cross stitched piece... I moved it around until I found a spot that was just right :)
I stitched it in place with a whipped stitch and then embellished the fabric design images with stitching.........using stem stitches, french knots, and lazy daisy stitches.........added some buttons....then stitched a piece of backing fabric (I always use a piece of wool..so my edges will not  fray)..........turned the right side out and stuffed with fiberfill....but walnut shells would be a great idea too. 
I did the cross stitching on 28ct natural linen over 2 with 3 strands of thread. 
So these Stitch An Inches are really 2 inches.
More tomorrow !!
