Remembering Atilla: Progress with pillow
9 December 2012
Posted by on
As previously posted, I have made a pillow to house Raspy’s remains. Naturally, Atilla’s will have the same treatment.
Atilla’s pillow is not finished but I have made some progress. I decided to pad the pillow with something she loved, tea-towels. She had done a good job shredding a couple that I had draped over the back of her beloved Poang chair. It was these two I used to pad her pillow & protect her remains.
As with Raspy, I used yellow velvet to make the inner sleeve. This was embroidered in a thread that matched the delicate colour of her cheek patches. This cushion/pillow now sits by the digital photo frame, alongside her sister.
I am currently working on the outer sleeve. I have embroidered her name.
All the other parts are ready but need to be assembled. Watch this space.
Love you, my beautiful ‘Tilla.
