The Oakleaf Pillow

I think the Oakleaf pillow may be one of my favourite designs, I really love the shape and texture of the oakleaves against the white cotton, as well as their mossy green colour. The appliques  actually take me ages to do because I machine stitch all the veins in the leaves, and sewing round the edge to attatch them to the pillow is pretty fiddly!

The result is worth it though.I gave a version of this pillow to my sister in law, her house in Tuscany is called "Querciatello". Quercia in Italian means oak tree, so I thought it was pretty appropriate!
