My lovely friend's wedding shower was today so I can officially reveal one of my secret projects! Earlier I had embroidered a flamingo for her wedding invitations and then I added a few things to it and made it into a pillow! The absolutely best tutorial I've found on making an envelope pillow is this one. It is simple and easy to understand!
Here are some pictures:
Two lovely little flamingos!
The back--made from an old skirt I had. I thought the colors went perfectly with the front!
