When I get bored of making clothes, then comes the home decor. I made this pillow out of an old 4 ply silk dress. Hand painted and embroidered. Added some gold trimming for bling effect and red piping around the edges.

Material Notes

Poly lining for backing

    I love what you’ve done with this project. It’s beautiful and a great way to re-make old clothes. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks! It doesn’t go well with my decor, so I’m probably gonna sell it at some point. But right now I just want to love it a little bit longer:)))
