This pillow I decided to make after talking to my sister-in-law. I thought I have this great silk sitting around and I know just what to do. I hooped my silk with the proper backing and out came this beautiful embroidery and I decided to make two more for my living room. Normally I put zippers on my pillows on these I didn't think I needed them. I don't plan on letting anyone touch them. They are just for me.
