I'd forgotten how to sew with velvet. In an attempt to make pillows, the first try had me ripping out stitches. The velvet slid like crazy, even though I used a walking foot. Once I was back at Square One, I basted the two pieces together, then machine-sewed it.
The purple pillow is for my La-Z-Girl chair and the black/white pillow is for Tien's office sofa.
