For this project, I used the female symbol, cross stitched in black and red to embrace the ideals of feminism and equality.
|I started with a template made on graph pattern for the pattern. The lettering and phrases around the edges were mostly just to get a template for the letters not for the final placement.|
|When the needlework was completed I cut a square of a red velvet-like material (seen in a few other projects) for the backing. Instead of sewing them right sides together, I opted to sew them wrong sides together.|
|Using the opening I left, I carefully stuffed the pillow to the desire fluffiness with some poly-fil I had on hand, being careful not to rip open the stitches around the opening.|
|A pillow to make any feminist proud. (Take ye inspiration where ye may.)|
