Birthday present for a 4yr old boy. The name didn't show up so well in the fluffy fabric but the train looks good! Train is from Embroidery Library.

I like the idea about the press and seal. If you were also talking about the construction of the pillow, you would want to use a walking foot to keep it from shifting and I keep a toothbrush with my sewing accessories and before you pin the seam together, use the brush and brush the fur away from the seam toward the body of the pillow, then when you turn it the fur you brushed to the middle will not be caught in the seam and help to make the seam dissapear.

Jasanne, this is cute. Nice job on both the train and name, along with making the pillow.

I use press and seal (kitchen wrap) as a topper. A tip I picked up here on cute. It sticks to the fluff enough to hold it and I get a good stitch out. I'm still not 100% about using the press and seal as it isn't really designed for embroidery machines but it works till I find a better way. Using solvy didnt work as well as it still moved a bit with the pile of the fabric.

Thanks for the toothbrush tip - I'll try that next time, as my daughters want one now! I just usede a lot of pins along the seam, lucky thing with a pillow is if it shifts a little it doesn't notice!
