I made this pillow for SpookyPooky. She happened to have this image on her wist and I loved it so I drew it out and got to stitching. It is all 2 strand backstitch. I used vintage sequins and seed beads to dress up the bride.

I made a pillow from decor weight fabric with burned edged satin ruffles in the wedding colors. Note the awesome use of rick rack.  Cheesy

I made the back so that the pillow can be removed if the case needs a gentle hand washing.

Thanks for looking!

The embroidery is gorgeous and just a bit creepy!  I love the fabrics you chose for the pillow, and the bright contrasting ruffles.

Lovely! I really like the simplicity of the white stitching on black. Your partner will love it!
