Crewelwork Pillows

I love mini pillows!  I used some beautiful linen and tiny crewelwork fabric I had on hand.  Crewelwork is so intricate and is used on drapery treatments, table linens, upholstery and even on beautiful shawls.  Victorian ladies enjoyed embroidering it to pass the time.  I had just enough to make a few pillows for the blue toile little boy's room in my Garfield/Greenleaf Thumbelina.  I added some silk cording from a remnant of Samuel and Sons passmenterie.  I even tied tiny bows on the tops.  I am very excited about them!
