My first big girl job was sales support associate. In that role I supported sales representatives in the mid-atlantic and Canada regions. That position allowed me to learn from so many successful representatives and I was fortunate enough to have two of them write me letters of recommendations when I was applying for the position I have now with the company. One of those reps has become my friend and mentor so I was super excited when I found it she is having a baby boy. I wanted to give her a gift and make it something special. So of course I whipped out my embroidery tools and made her a pillow.
I followed the same process I did with Emily’s pillow and am so happy with the results.
I made the pillow olive green after Jen told me the colors of her baby’s room and I chose the owls because of the nursery theme: woodland friends. Too cute!!
I made an envelope backed pillow cover using Martha Stewart’s instructions. Love my Martha!
The embroidery floss colors were chosen to be bright, cherry, and boyish.
Pinks for the Mama Bird.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!
