A couple of posts ago I was contemplating the finish of this piece. Per one of my blogger friends suggestions, I went with purple frills around this pillow. She said, purple reminds her of Easter...Purple IS the color of Easter and I just so happened to have a bouquet of fresh purple tulips for the photo shoot....P.E.R.F.E.C.T!!
If purple isn't your color, there are other color options for the seam tape ribbon finish on this design. Other colors that beautifully match the floss colors in this piece are - Moss, Posie, or Grecian Pink. The Grecian Pink is an exact match to the Baby's Breath linen by Weeks that this piece is worked upon...I think the Grecian Pink would give the pillow an elegant finish, as well.
Bunny & C0. is worked on 30 count linen (Baby's Breath by Weeks Dye Works) over 2 threads using Weeks flosses throughout. When the pillow is completed, sewn & stuffed it measures 8" x 12"...a perfect sized accent pillow. I have a vintage teddy bear that is sitting in a child's chair that is currently holding my pillow...so sweet!

Also new, are 6 new shades of the vintage seam tape ribbon. This is the ribbon that we use to add the frills to the edges of our cross stitch designs...it is beautiful! And YES, we do give the detailed instructions, in the cross stitch pattern, for adding the seam tape ribbon frill to the piece.
