Did you think I'd ever finish this little pillow? I was beginning to wonder myself! It is finished.
I found one of the school's logos online, printed it on fabric, then attempted to applique it onto the black velvet center. It is surrounded with a bit of tatting and beads.
I found this eagle motif online, traced it onto the fabric and embroidered it. I am happy with how it turned out.
I had made the block too big, and one of the motifs got trimmed away, so I embroidered the cap again on the lower left.
This is a little 2007 charm I found to include. The stitching isn't fancy, but I felt he would better appreciate a simple, cleaner look. I sure hope he likes it. He's worked hard and sacrificed lots of time.
I'm very glad it's finished - something to check off my list.
