Some fruit of my labor

Started with a pillow I had purchased on sale. Then using some material I had on hand, appliqued some leaves and border in green. Selected buttons in 'grapeish' colors and sewed into place. Then attached to the pillow by sewing just under the tassel fringe.


Beautiful buttons, some old, some not so old.

Hi Candy, I just found your blog and it is so cool. Hula dancing and ukulele playing sounds like such fun. Wish I were closer to you! Your pillow is really cute, such a clever and cute idea.

Love this! My mom in law would love to have a throw pillow just like it. Can I copy your idea for a gift?
