Pillow talk

Here's what I've been working on recently.

All the kids in my mothers' group turn on in the middle of February so they all had a joint birthday party and Possum and I were the guests!
So as little present for them all I made them name pillows.
Since making Possum a stocking for Christmas using this tutorial and using this tutorial to learn how to embroider I've really gotten into my embroidery.
I hand embroidered the names and then made borders in coordinating fabrics. I used this tutorial to make the actual pillows.
When it came to Isabella's I didn't have the stamina so I found a different stitch and a different font and did a slightly different version, I think I need to practice my raw edge applique technique!!!
