Several months ago we had an epiphany to move an "extra" couch into our bedroom in hopes of luring one or more of our Beastie Grrrlz onto it and off our our bed.  It worked!  With one.  So when we got to re-decorate our master bedroom at our new place, it was time to make new throw pillows for Betty's couch!



I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and I had the lattice print, but wasn't feeling big lattice rectangles here.  Hmmmm.  Then I got the idea to do applique cameo-style silhouettes of my girlies!



I used a regular ol' gimp braid to cover the seam where the oval was appliqued to the pillow front and I covered the seam the gimp made with a covered button I made using the lattice material.  (Delia on the left, Betty on the right)

Thanks everyone!  Now I know why custom throw pillows cost so much.  These 2 took probably 6-7 hours not including shopping for materials and making the patterns for the silhouettes which I already had.
