I created the pillow above on Saturday! The pillow features about a dozen 1 inch pleats and about 100 colorful buttons hand sewn and layered on a scrap of linen. It took HOURS longer than I anticipated...mostly spent sewing on the layers of buttons...but that detail was so worth it! I like it!
I am not sure what I'm going to do with it yet...right now it's on the couch in the living room...where my cat, Yello, likes to sleep. I hope my cats don't discover it too soon. I can just imagine them manicuring their nails on it or getting playful with the buttons! Or...or... even playing hockey with the buttons after they discover how easy it is to pull them off!
