oh ..... this one is going to be hard to part with .
I painted the girl on an old linen napkin , sewed it to a piece of muslin and made the pillow .
I added bits of my mother's old crochet doilies . I tea stained the crocheted pieces . I hand stitched this and old wood buttons and even pieces of cheesecloth .
The pillow measures 12 x 13 inches
I don't know why some things I just want to keep .... maybe because I think my mom would have liked this pillow . Sometimes I just think of her and get a feeling that she approves .
I will put this in my Etsy shop ..... maybe tonight . Michael Husband just came home > gotta shift to thinking WHAT'S FOR DINNER ! ugh
