My client needed these pillows in a hurry. Her client's home was to be photographed and the original date was moved up, which meant I had to sew fast. There were 7 total pillows and I knew that I could easily make them all in one day if I absolutely had to. Turned out I had to!
I decided to make these two first as they were much more complicated than the others. As I was working on them, I kept thinking, why does she want them this way? They were a pain and I thought the fabric was interesting enough without adding a band of fabric with another trim on top. Well, when I finished them, I understood. They turned out really nicely and looked much better than I thought they would. Perhaps this is why I am the seamstress and not the designer? I think they turned out even better than the designer thought they would. Funny how that works.
These 4 were pretty easy, just brush fringe and zipper closure.
One side was blue tweed and the other was blue silk.
And last, but not least, one in a gold tweed with brush fringe.

Don't know when the photos will be in the magazine, or, for that matter, what magazine they will be in. I forgot to ask. I was just happy to get them done in time.
