In order to use the goose in its entirety, I made a goose cushion. Not quite enough for a pillow, but a nice little cushion.
Beppe washed the feathers in some ammonia mixture, and left them to dry under netting.
The pillow fabric was an upholstry sample I found about the place and some of that satiny yellow cotton that i made the puffy sleeve shirt out of (the one I haven't photographed yet.)
Not having any decent cording for the edge, I twisted some knitting cotton and made it myself. Thrifty.
As a finishing touch, as I was closing the pillow, I embroidered the name of the dead goose; Bitonale, Two toned.
