Check out the Fall 2014 issue of Stitch magazine. My Dots & Dashes Pillow made in three colors of Alabama Chanin 100% cotton, all-American-organically-made, knit is on page 37. And the best part is that the instructions for making it are included in the magazine!
The Alabama Chanin fabrics used in this pillow were the Medium-weight Organic Cotton Jersey in Apple Red, White, and Gold.
I used handmade crochet buttons for the centers of the reverse applique circles. Got them on Etsy (wish I knew how to crochet!).
