Jim the Pillow, part 5

Jim the Pillow is finished! I hope you all have enjoyed seeing how to start with a photo, make a pattern, applique the shape, and add embroidery to bring your pet to life.

Watch this video to see how I embroidered the flowers—plus how to sew the chain and detached chain stitches!

It’s subtle, but the lines of stitching below Jim anchor him in place :-). I finished the bottom of the pillow with a zipper to make it easy to clean as needed.

  1. Becky, great tips on your embroidery and Sashiko stitches.
    I love how “Jim” is turning out. Much better than the original
    Pillow that you purchased. This brings back lots of memories from the
    Old Tulsa Guild days. Your an excellent teacher as always.
