'Stripy Orbs' Pillow- Part 3 of 3

Machine stitching the felt to the leather...


                                                ...with the wrong sides out.



                                                 An opening is left on one side...



                                                   ...for pillow form insertion...



                                      ...after the envelope is turned right-side out.



                              Strong, nylon thread is used to stitch up the opening.


                                            The three bumpy inclusions ('orbs')...

                                     ...remain quite elevated in the finished project...



                                     ...and the 'striping' comes from color blending...



                                                      ...during the layout.



                  If you look closely, you'll see a few marks and striations in the leather...

                                       ...but I rather like these little imperfections. :)
