Here is a great pillow sewn with silk variegated threads in different greens with a dash of glitter thread sewn in. All my pillows are my own designs and backed with recycled fabric scraps found at a thrift store. This one has a bit of trim around the edges on a dark khakish green to match the backing.
Each pillow takes me about 4 months to sew. They are sewn in a basic needlepoint stitch on a petit-point cotton canvas.
