"Bloodshot Eyeball" Pillow Cover- Part 2

Felted and sewn pillow cover.
 


Close up of 'eyeball'.
 


Pillow front.
 


Pillow back.
 


I'm sure you know that I didn't intend to make an eyeball pillow cover...

...but that's kind of what it resembles, hence the name.

I guess I'll have to make sure that this pillow goes to someone who doesn't read my blog...

...or who wouldn't be put off by the idea of 'conjunctivitis as design'! Grin.

As with all of my pillow covers, I trimmed this one square, backed it with fabric...

...and sewed a couple of lines of stitching to make the border.

The bright red and white fabric really works with the colors of the pillow...

...and brings to mind a Swedish Dala horse.

hi heather! about the vase:
i made a resist and extended it 20%
it didn't shrink enough, so i put it in very hot water and shrunk it again and than it was the right size. good luck!
