i used some of my hand painted/ dyed fabric and painted our initials on; cut out the squares and stitched together. i also used a stamp from Rae Missigman's new stamp set to stamp the blue flower on top.
i love the pinstriped linen fabric ruffle...and of course the black n white polka dot fabric on the back.
i did some hand stitching to secure the lace doily into place after machine stitching the edges. i also added a few cute, vintage buttons for some additional details and contrasting texture.
to finish it off i had stuffed it and hand stitched the corner with pink thread. i decided to hand stitch all along the bottom to give a smoother edge and finish to my pillow.
