I just love this design.  I finished it as a small pillow to use on my deacon's bench in my kitchen.  I made a pillow insert about 8" x 10" and stuffed with polyfil.  Then I made a pillowcase with the stitched piece and the star fabric and used the 3 buttons to close it.  This really is so pretty and I could keep it out all year, but if I want I can make another case with another design and change it out.  It's much easier to store flat cases when not in use than it is to store thick pillows! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous finish and lovely stitching! I like your 'pillowcase' idea. I may have to borrow it.
