Cute worn out pillow
Worn out backing
Massive quantities of red velvet everywhere
I had not really looked at the pillow to figure out how to replace the backing and when I did I realized that it was stuffed with feathers. When I took it apart there was a muslin inner pillow and it had a seam with a large hole so there were loose feathers and dust galore. Quite a mess. I reused the muslin pillow and found a feather pillow in my closet and borrowed some of the feathers from it and resewed the seams on the muslin to fix the blowout.
I drew a pattern on newspaper of the circle for the back and cut a very long strip of the new velvet plus the circle and got busy. A short while later I had a new pillow ready for sitting. It sits up quite nicely now and looks nice with my furniture which is near in color to the red velvet.
It's so nice when a plan comes together!

By the way the image on the pillow is a cat with the words "What the cat thinketh When the cat winketh Little Wots the mouse". No clue what that means.
