This is a pillow I made for an Aids Ministries fundraiser and I had originally set out to make a purse but I wanted it to appeal to the men who were bidding so I made it from leather and a pillow. (there were more men than women going to attend)

The fabric parts are made from a silk boucle skirt that I repurposed. The embroidery is all rayon 40 weight and the buckle is an antique mother-of-pearl.

Here is a closeup of one of the embroideries.

This is the other embroidery. It is actually a quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin.

The winning bidder paid $75 and was really happy! Others who were bidding against him want more. Cheesy

beautiful and so creative!  May I ask what tips you have for embroidering on leather?  I got some scraps but didn't consider embroidering...
