For a fish loving family member:
(Maybe someday I'll learn how to tile pictures.) That's the front and back of the same pillow. And I got to use my ten cent/yard bargain find cording. Also on my "some day" list is learning how to get the binding tighter. I use a zipper foot, but perhaps I need a cording foot?
This next pillow was made for a family member in a nursing home. I was hoping that the shape would be useful for positioning. I embroidered their name on it since things in nursing homes have a way of disappearing. I put paper over the name in the picture for privacy. This one is made out of flannel for softness and purposely has no binding to prevent pressure points.
