Pillow Reduction

While my grandmother was in town, she indicated that the new pillow for the chair in her room was simply too full and asked if I could make it flatter for her.

As you can see, it's a lovely pillow. 

Like most commercially-made pillows these days the side that was left open for turning it right-side out and putting the stuffing in was top-stitched closed.

I carefully cut and unpicked all of the stitches.

I decided that rather than just topstitch the pillow back to its original state it made more sense to blind-stitch it closed. 

i imagine an explosion of polyfil coming from the pillow

In short order the pillow was finished and is now half the thickness it was before.

Maybe not the most exciting post, I know, but it's nice to have a project to share where I've actually finished it.  

Hope your week has started off nicely.
