Emily really liked the vintage transfer I posted recently, and I think it works well on the pillow. The design is stitched with one strand of floss on a silk decorator sample (one of a lot of hundreds I purchased in a wonderful ebay auction). For the back I used scraps from the pennants, some of which were a bit too white, so this morning I painted a few of them with a little leftover coffee.
The best part of all is the beautiful tatted and crocheted edging — a gift made especially for me by my tatting blog friend, Ann (Nifty Needle). I have had this piece for awhile now, but have been saving it for something really special. A little tea dye on the white edging was all it needed, then I hand stitched it to the edge of the little sewn pillow. I hope Ann likes it — I know Emily will.
