A rose pillow
This pillow was made for a commission. I used a mixture of fabrics, with two forming the front and one for the back. The front was then embellished with an image of a lily (the pillow was for someone called Lily), a patch of vintage embroidery, my own embroidery, lace, pink gingham, prairie pints and a piece of lace.
I also created three buttons, which were each made from two fabrics and decorated with embroidery. These buttons have been tied onto the pillow so that they sink into it.
Once the pillow had been backed and stuffed with stuffing and dried rose petals, I then edged it in running stitch.
