Remembering Thomas: Progress on pillow

It has been some time since I posted on Thomas’s sad return to the fold.  As with Raspy & Atilla, my plan has been to make a personal pillow for his remains that reflects a little of his personality, rather than keep the bland & hard bamboo pouch supplied.

One reason for the delay in completing this has been my need to find a piece of fabric that accurately reflects the bright blue colour he was.  Perhaps I have been a bit fussy but nothing seems to be quite right.  If it is the right intensity of blue, it is the wrong shade… & so on.

Anyway, recently I finally completed his inner pouch.  This is a very simple design.  I used white, as he had a white face & added some blue embroidered writing, saying:

Thomas Perrywinkle

27th April 2013 (adoption day)

to 27th January 2014

I think I have decided on the design for the outer cover.  It is difficult to encompass everything I want to express in such a small item but hopefully the care taken & time invested in creating his final ‘home’ will show, at the very least, that he was loved very much.
