This is how I protect my fingers when I need to steam under 1/4 inch (or any hem). Don't usually use this many pins, but it doesn't really take much time to pin it to the ironing board and press. Especially since it saves me from burning my fingers!
A little rickrack...I've made the closure and put on a little label giving Miss Mila credit for the drawing of Mojo. Will post the finished pillow tomorrow.
Another great give-away, especially if you like Denyse Schmidt's fabric. Check it out here at The Little Blue Cottage.
