Home Is Where The Dog Is and a Sneak Peek

One of my favorite blogs is Savvy Southern Style where Kim posted an update of her master bedroom yesterday. I loved her new style, but one thing that really caught my eye was the pillow in this last photo. She is a dog lover like I am and I knew I had to have a pillow like hers.
Be sure to check out the rest of the pictures, she always does an amazing job.
So I decided to make one with my embroidery machine. I used my lettering software to create the design and I had the perfect pillow that I had picked up at Goodwill this week to make a cover for. I am always on the outlook for feather pillows that I can recover,
and this one set me back $1.99!
So, here is the result. I am so pleased with how this turned out!
I even added the little paw prints! And for the sneak peek, her is my big project that I am working on. I should have it finished by tomorrow, so keep an eye out! Once again, thanks for visiting and a big welcome to all of my new followers! I am so excited to have more than fifty of you wonderful folks following my posts. Linking to the following parties:

  1. I can't wait to see your finished project! I visited your new booth at the antique mall. You have it fixed so cute! I had seen your drop cloth covered chair at your old booth and loved it. Would you be interested in sewing one for me?? I thought I might attempt making one, but it may be too much for a beginner!

  2. I absolutely love the pillow and so miss my doggie... :(
