My love of peonies has inspired me to do a series of little pillows for my soon-to-be Etsy Shoppe!
The pillows are made of 100% linen. I think linen is my favorite fabric to work with. I love how you can just rip it and it will always rip straight. That little trick makes my life so much easier! I especially love it cut on the bias and then gathered to form elegant and soft ripples.
My favorite part of these little gems is that you can pin one of your favorite brooches to the center of the flower and add a little touch of glam. I chose to pin the brooch from my wedding dress to the pillow. I mean what good was it doing in my closet? It's way too pretty to be in the dark and dusty purgatory that is my closet.
I don't believe in putting our fancy things away for special occasions. Everyday is special! Plus, while designing our room I unconsciously chose elements that are reminiscent of our wedding day, so why not throw in my brooch too :)
I promise to do a post on our room once it is finished....in about three months!!
It is coming along slowly, but so far, it is as Miss Chi Chi Rodriguez would say: "It's so ROMANTICAL!"
I thought your day could use a little Chi Chi Fabulousness :)
PS Sorry for the image quality! I have had such poor lighting for two days and couldn't wait any longer for better lighting :)
