Quidditch cross stitch pillow - COMPLETE

I FINALLY learned to use a sewing machine and made the Quidditch cross stitch piece I made into a pillow. Well, I made two - one for a friend and one for me since I really liked the cross stitch design.

Stages of almost finished:

I learned to do a slip stitch (Or am learning as I see) to hide the stitches when closing the pillow.

Completed pillow:

I'm currently working on finishing the second one! The first one is all ready to be shipped to my friend! :) The pillows aren't as "perfect" as I wanted, but I'm happy with it. This project involved a lot of screw ups and undoing stitches.

I'm sew regretting (see what I did there) buying pillows instead of just using stuffing - that would have rehired less hand stitching

Thanks!!!

Finished the second pillow!! And realized I didn't finish the cross stitch part somehow. Fuuuuck. Any ideas on how to fix this without completely undoing things? I was so proud because I did a much better job with the slip stitch on the side on this one than the first one.image.jpeg

Oh boy! I wish we lived nearer to each other ...it would be so much easier to show you...okay....I see where the problem is. Do you have an issue with not using a hoop?

Instead of stabbing the needle down for a stitch, you're going to need to slide it diagonally to the next stitch hole without hopefully catching any of the filling and then reverse it to complete the stitch.  I'm not great at explaining it....better at showing how.

I don't have an issue with not using a hoop. I think I get what you mean (not entirely sure, I'll have to try) but I'm not sure how I'd secure the ends if I can't see the back.

I forgot that issue...you can try to slip it behind and underneath the stitches. I hope you don't have to undo the pillow!

I think I might have to undo stitches...I was playing with the last stitch I made and I have no idea how to tuck it back under the cloth. So if I finished it off I don't know how I'd tuck that underneath either.

@DaniLouisiana I ended up taking out the slip stitches that I used to close the pillow to finish the embroidery. NOW I'm done! I'm mailing my friend her pillow tomorrow...which will be another package for her to open since she's moving in with her sister to go to grad school and will have lots of boxes everywhere.

      I admit that stockings are the funniest one to me. The only reason for stockings is for Santa. And all fundies seem to be completely against Santa. So why the stockings? I saw Erin Paine had stockings up. How does she explain the reasoning behind hanging them? She could just avoid the stockings and put gifts under the tree from mommy and daddy.

      Does his girlfriend need a green card really bad or something? Who would put up with a sexist, idiotic, man child like him? He has no money. She must be desperate to stay in the US for some reason. I can’t imagine anyone finding this guy attractive. Plus she doesn’t have to have sex with him until they are married. Which is probably a plus.

      Besides generally just being themselves, you mean? 

      There was a lot of speculation about Jill having exposed to the public some private info about the wedding (by posting a photo of the invite, I believe it was).
