I have always been a huge fan of toile fabric and after being inspired by several posts here on craftster,  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331859.0
and
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=344019.0 and finding Richard Saja's amazing work http://historically-inaccurate.blogspot.com/
i decided that I would give it a try. My embroidery skills are not very advanced but I am super proud of it. I used a faux suede upholstery fabric (50% off at Joann's) and turned my piece into a pillow. The toile ia also a 50 percent off upholstry special.
It figured it took me about 7 hours to complete and I am already working on a couple other themes.....zombies and day of the dead.



Excuse my pencil marks.....these pics were taken before I washed it up.










I added beads to the tree to give the appearance of tiny flowers.

I love it! It's such a fun idea. I really like that guy's stripey tie. Smiley
