I started with a patchwork of fabrics and decorated each of the seams in one way or another. I used glass beads, buttons, pearls, pieces of jewellery, ric rac, lace, crocheted flowers and gimp as well as a selection of different embroidery threads.
The photos below are of the completed pillow.

|The beaded button in the middle of this photo has been tied on once the pillow was stuffed.|
I backed the pillow with the same leaf fabric that I used to make the pocket in the top right-hand corner of the pillow.
