The Embellishment Factor

When you look all day
at a ho-hum pillow, 
you might think that there has 
got
to be something you could do to take it from this.....


to This....


So, I took some old fabric we had 
cut it into strips, and fashioned it into a bow


I then put one of my vintage pins 
on it to hold it in place....


I sat it on top of my pillow...
already it looks better :)


I dug through the ribbon drawers and found 
a ribbon that would work!


I tied the ribbon around the pillow and after I knotted it
 and tacked it into place with my needle & thread.


Of course, 
I had to add a few more loops 
to make a nice full bow.  
Then I pinned the pin on top of it....


Voila!


What an exciting pillow I have now!

What will you Embellish?!!
