A Chip Off the Old Block?

My daughter is enjoying her sewing journey.  She made this pillow for her fiancé, who is currently in Afghanistan.

I think it looks very military - the red and the gold braid are perfect. 

 Here is her commentary: "You'll notice that the cord fringe doesn't come together nicely like a thinner fabric fringe would so I actually had to tuck both ends of the cord into the pillow and then an elaborate version of the slip knot to secure it all in place. Feel free to post this pic on your blog! "

She is overly critical of her work, just like many of us sewers.  But, she's already meeting the inevitable challenges of sewing.  I think the pillow is wonderful!


  1. I think the pillow is wonderful, too! Yup, I'd say she might be a chip...

  2. It's a great pillow. So nice for you to be able to pass on your love of sewing to her.
