Vof vof vof! It’s Nero here and I’m happy you stopped by because, you know what happened? This bird came to my garden …
… and it sat on my new pillow!
Teje said I can have this because it could be boy’s pillow. Daytime I have doggie bed outside and I put my new pillow next to me. I love to stay there and watch who walks on the street and what happens in my garden.
I let the bird sit in the olive tree and it looked fun. If I screw up my eyes, it’s almost like a real bird … only the black bird in my garden doesn’t have orange wings.
We made the quilting like spider web but you can’t see it very well because the thread is light blue.
For the backside we used Finlayson‘s cotton which was a table cloth but we never used it and saved it for something … a project like this. First we thought perhaps that fabric is too different than the patchwork but if you look from the side you see that it match well enough …
… and it has branches for the bird to sit!
Guess why these old wooden fences are here?
They are for me! Sometimes they don’t want me to run like ‘grazy’ around the big garden and I should stay near the house. When I see somthing interesting, I fly like a wind and forget that I should take care of stones and fences … and that I’m not a little boy anymore. But even I have arthritis on my back legs, I can jump like a gangaroo over this wooden fence!
This cushion cover is about 16″ x 16″ (42 x 42 cm). If you like to see how we made the patchwork bird, look our TUTORIAL!
Thank you for your lovely messages and I’m really happy you came to see me and my new pillow! If you think it’s possible to make one pillow you are wrong … few more are on the way and then I want one bigger!
