Remembering Atilla: Progress with pillow

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.

    That’s a wonderful tribute to a truly remarkable hen. Atilla will live in our memories for a long time to come!
