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.

Jim the Pillow, part 3…

I post the Time Out videos here for those of you who miss them on Youtube, Facebook, and IGTV. I am a week behind on the Jim the Pillow posts, so here is Part 3. I’m live again this coming Wednesday. Part 4 will show up on here on the blog after that.

Keeping up with social media is a juggling act and my balls are not always in the air :-).
