Pocket Pillow

Yesterday I decided to start on one of my New Year's resolutions- to use up my fabric stash as much as possible. I found this pattern from Nova at a Cuppa and a Catch Up and I knew it would be perfect for small scraps.

The pattern was really easy to follow and it came together in just a day. I didn't baste the dresden section as it stated so my petals are a bit loose so I'll make sure to do that part next time. I did some hand quilting like her example and had a lot of fun with it. Next time I'll embroider a name on the pocket section or maybe add a button just for kicks. Super cute! Maybe I'll work up a stash of these for gifts!
