I decided to make a pillow to go with the Afghan for my mother-in-law. This was actually the swatch square that I did to show her what I thought the square should look and then after seeing it in one color we went and picked out another color which was the heather grey. So I saved the solid square and it has been tossed here and there and I thought of the pillow.
I made an applique first of little forget-me-not flowers and attached in a bunch. I them embellished that with beads and sewed it to the center of the square after adding several rows to the border. I then made two petal forget-me-not's that seemed to look like butterflies to me and placed them in each corner and put the smaller forget-me-not's that I had from a bag of buttons and sewed them to the middle. I think the red/pink color is the same to match the curtains that she made with fabric she bought while on her last trip to Paris. If it does not match I can always remove them with a simple "snip".
So here are the photos.
Love and Hugs and wishing you a happy Friday!!
