1920's ladies pin pillow.
I've had the fabric printed with 1920s-style ladies for a while waiting for the right project to come along. This pin pillow was made for someone who liked the colours grey and yellow, although the ladies fabric has a bit of blue in it, it goes perfectly with the grey fabric printed with the word sew. The image og the lady with a fan was found on Pinterest and was attached to the band of grey fabric, itself edged in chain stitch, with pekinese stitch.
On the left side of the pillow , lace has been added and decorated with buttonhole stitch and french knots. The grey fabric has been used for the back as well. Once stuffed, the yellow silk fabric-covered button was tied onto the pillow.
