Bedroom Pillow Project

I'm not real sure about this pillow that I created, so I thought I'd show it to you creative bloggers before putting it in my booth.  It's made with a piece of white chenille fabric and the pocket is a piece of a vintage dresser scarf.  I added the lace edging.  Then tucked a magazine and a sachet inside.  I think it would be really sweet in a guest room holding a book and some other sweet items. 

What's yall's opinion??????  Be honest now because if you really don't like it please tell me to go back to the drawing board.  Or, if you think it needs something else then tell me that too.  I'm countin on you.



Your pillow is sweet and charming. Guests would certainly think so too. Blessings!

I think it's very creative! I like it! I oculd also see one for use in a family room, putting your glasses in it, magazine, hiding the remote, LOL

I'll tell ya what it needs, needs me! It needs to come here and live with me ;) Just kidding. It's scrumptious! Go for it. btw, I saw no less than 3 Parisienne/cafe chairs this weekend for sale. 2 at St. Vinnie's and 1 at Salvation Army. Did I buy them? Sadly, no. Will I if they're there next time? What do you think? ;p (Yes!)

Sissie, I love the pillow. It's a winner for sure. It would be perfect for a guest room! Take it to your booth and be prepared to make more!!

Sissie the pillow is perfect. That will not last long in your booth for sure. You'll be needing to make more real soon. I love the idea of the front pocket for holding needful things.

Well..I get around to many shops (when I am well) and visit a lot of ebay and etsy shops and I love this pillow. Anything that makes thing convenient and yet is so pretty, really appeals to me! Especially when there is a little pocket for reading glasses. It would be wonderful in any room in a sweet cottage home or as a gift, IF you could bear to part with it.
Cute, cute, cute!!

Oh my gosh Sissie, I see what you mean. My skates look just like yours except for the toes and my glitter. We do have a lot in common I made some pillows out of the chenille bedspread also but I put rose fabric on the other side. Yours is beautiful, don't change a thing. Thanks for stopping by.
