Many years ago, my main craft was crochet, and I had whipped up this teal/turquoise pillow cover. It is all one piece, and cannot come off without cutting. I had no idea what to do with it, and it was pretty but plain, so it sat on a shelf in my bedroom for all this time.

Lately, I have been repurposing living room pillows in a bird theme (a thread for that is in misc topics board), and so I decided now was the perfect time to find some crochet  bird appliques to work up.

I found a pattern on Etsy last night, and finished this fun applique today! It is several sizes of flowers on a  branch with a perched bird and flying bird.

I used only yarn in my stash that I hoped would coordinate ok with the pillow cover.

The bird pattern was a little weird to follow, but now the pillow has some bling!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That is so dang cute! I love that you "rescued" that pillow from the shelf and then used all stash to embellish it to boot!
