Simplicity Pattern 3823

Valentines Anniversary Pillows for Colin

My boyfriend, Colin, and I had our anniversary on the 15th of February, so I made a combined valentines/anniversary set of silky cushions. I managed to finish them in 2 days, using my sewing machine then hand embroidering- and was really happy with the results =)

Here they are :

The back view- with contrast zips:

And here’s the embroidery on the black pillow- a girl holding a heart-shaped balloon.

The first thing I sewed with a sewing machine

I went to learn how to use a sewing machine and this was the result =) I then got a sewing machine for christmas!
