Spring is here! Say it with pillows.

Because yesterday was the (official) first day of spring, I finally finished a little project I have been working on… Pillows! I used mixed techniques to put words on them — embroidery, appliqué, and painting with textile paint. I especially enjoyed the embroidery work — it’s been a long time since I did embroidery, and I forgot how much fun it is!

Happy spring everyone!!

Happy Spring! Those are awesome!! Love them!
Can I ask, what embroidery stitches did you use? I want to look them up to learn them. I’m slowly teaching myself embroidery.
Thanks!! xox

Hi Jen!
Thank you! And regarding stitches — I don’t really know, I just did something, but I think it’s called a stem stitch or an outline stitch? For the outlines. And then I just sort of randomly filled it in.
Good luck!!!!
