>Elegant Pillow

>I think there’s a theme here…we had another snow day today, and I made another pillow! πŸ™‚ This pillow is much more “formal” than my other pillows I have been making, and I tackled a zipper this time! I was ready to throw it across the room a few times, but I think it’s very pretty now that it’s finished πŸ™‚

I attached flowers I made using a tutorial I posted a few days ago, just using “pearls” instead of the vintage buttons
This is the bottom of the pillow:
Top of the pillow:

And here she is! Don’t you think she’s elegant?! I will confess…I originally cut the fabric too small (on the top and the bottom) and didn’t realize until I had already sewn the zipper on. SO, I improvised, and paired the black silk with the gray fabric…and I think it’s better for it! Then I had to idea to add the flowers, and I am proud with how she turned out πŸ™‚ And now I can simply sell it as a pillow COVER on my Etsy shop, and I don’t have to worry about the extra shipping costs to ship the whole pillow! Yay! πŸ™‚
I’ll leave you with 2 pictures of our snowstorm:
