A pillow for a wedding
Unfortunately, it was a really dull day when I had to take the photos of this pillow so, they're not as bright as I'd like.
I started this pillow with ivory silk that I printed the image of the happy couple onto. I then decorated with lace cut out from an old slip that I added backstitch curls, french knots and beads too. The heart is a guipure applique and there's also a small blue guipure flower under a button and some french knots. Just to add that little bit of blue, to go with the new silk and old buttons, though there isn't anything borrowed on the pillow, three out of the four isn't bad.
I hope you're having a good start to your week and I'll be back on Thursday.
