Three flowers

This small pillow is truly a one-of-a-kind! I mixed a deep raspberry silk like fabric that is embroidered with dragon flies, with a yellow damask fabric, and complimented them both with a black fabric with golden dots. Two rows of deep raspberry pom pom trim separate the two sections and three antique buttons adorn the top of the trim. The flowers on the right of the pillow were each handmade. I used several fabrics including an off-white/grey toille, a black, off-white, and grey fabric that has a large flower print, a red organza, a solid black taffeta, and a black taffeta with a velvet damask pattern. Each flower has a rhinestone button in the middle of it, one of which is vintage.

The detail of the flowers is hard to capture, but here is a close up of them.

I paired it with the two pillows shown here. I like the way the Paris pillow gives the grouping an unexpected twist. Notice too how this grouping has a play on shapes. Each pillow has, in some small way, a square, round, or rectangle detail.
