I found the canvas that I used at a thrift store for a few cents.  I planned to frame it when I was done, but when I discovered a pillowcase (the floral fabric) in my massive stash of thrifted linens matched the colors I chose perfectly, I knew I had to make it into this pillow.

Have you ever put a brick through a big plate-glass window, Ralph? It makes a wonderful goddamn noise, and the people inside run around like rats in a firestorm. It's fun, Ralph, and a bargain at any price

I love its retro feel! It looks like something that came out of my great grandma's house (which is a good thing)!
