Emily's Pillow

I made a pillow and pillowcase for Emma, a good friend of my son Leo. Emma has an American Girl doll named Emily.

That's the quilt I made for Emma's doll Emily last year. (pictured here with MY Emily!)

I used vintage pillow ticking to make the pillow, and I hand embroidered the case. I had so much fun embroidering the pillowcase, that I started another project I'll be ready to show off in just a few days - it's an embroidery of the logo from my Roller Derby group on the back of my favorite Levi's jean jacket - roller skating has made me feel so great - and I'm pretty sure wearing my jean jacket adorned with embroidery will REALLY take me back!
