The run up to Christmas is always busy for a maker as there's so many things to make, be it for my shops, cards or presents. This lavender pillow is for a Christmas present.
It's made from a dull pink linen napkin with a strip of vintage Japanese silk appliquéd to it and it is decorated with silk prairie points, buttonhole lace, pekinese stitch, wrapped threads, bullion loops and french knots. I have also tied on some handmade buttons. The buttons are decorated with french knots and beads. The pillow is backed in dull pink velvet.
