Embellishing embroidery

Somebody gave me a couple pieces of embroidery and cross stitch and I didn’t do anything with them for a long time, but I found them back recently and decided to get creative.

Here’s my puppy pillow:

Here’s what it looks like next to my dog: I swear it’s a coincidence that the embroidered puppies look like the real one!

I really didn’t like these birds at first, but with the right fabric and trim, I’m really happy with them.

I obviously haven’t taken any quilting classes, because you can see that there are no actual right angles around this bird!
