This hand embroidered silk piece was all left for gone at a thrift store in town. It was a stunning pale pink with green leaves, red and pink flowers, but had pen marks all over it (the original artist drew the pattern in pen). So when I decided I was going to clean it up and turn it into the pillow it so deserved to be....well, I found out the flowers were all hand dyed and never rinsed! Oh man! Vibrant red ink ran all over this gorgeous silk embroidery! So instead of calling it a loss, I decided to just dye it all red.
I upcycled a women's mustart yellow blouse from the thrift store by cutting the tucks off the front and re-sewing them onto the left and right sides of the back piece. It doesn't have the same "dainty" look as before but now it has a cool spanish flair! I love the way it turned out :)
It is soo incredibly soft...it feels just like you're laying on your mama's chest! Amazing :)
