Pretty Pink Pillow

So I got this pink fabric from my mother-in-law, who got it from her mother-in-law.  So that would be my husbands grandmother.  Anyway, needless to say it's really old!  Maybe circa 1960's, you know it's really shiny and really sturdy!

When I saw it I thought, this would make a wonderful pillow for my neice.  Her room is all purple and pinks.  Wanted something for her to lounge on in her room.  I appologize for the crapy not so good pictures, but I couldn't figure out the lighting.  Really need to learn how to use my camera!

I sewed in between the fabrics some beaded trim, that was a pain! Bent the needle on the sewing machine doing that.  Then I used those o so sparkley jeweled letters to spell out her name.  That too was a major pain! I couldn't get the right temp on my iron to get those darn jewels to adhere!  Finally, after about an hour.......voila!  FYI -- This is the very 1st thing that I've ever sewn! I think it turned out pretty good, for a 1st timer!!!  ****Candie*****

P.S. I have more of this fabric left.... stay tuned to see what I make with the rest!
