Not much to say about this pillow. I just really liked the two pillows I made using the oakshott ruby F8th bundle that I wrote about a few weeks ago so I wanted to make a few more. For this one, I again used essex yarn-dyed linen and most of the fabrics from the bundle.
Here's my question: I wonder if I need to get new cushion inserts because my pillows seem to have lots of extra fabric in the corners. I just keep recovering the same inserts - do you think they are shrinking from use? Admittedly, in real life, I don't even notice this but it really stands out to me in the photos. Still, if you have a solution, I would love to hear it! If it makes a difference to your suggestions, I basically always use the envelope method for the pillows and I do make them about 1" smaller than the insert. And if it seems that a new insert is the answer, then I'll just use the inserts I have now for pillows in my daughters' room - I doubt they'll care!
