A Star is Born!

I wanted to create something unusual for a surprise present so pillow ideas were going through my head! I knew that I wanted it to "fit" into a bedroom make-over that was going to be happening soon and found out that the colour theme would be black/white/sparkly. It was also to be made for someone special, who is a star, so that was my starting point.
This was a very organic creative process that developed as I made it and final colours were decided upon once I came across the unusual beaded trim. Lots of satin, metallic threads, angelina fibres later and a star is born!

This pillow is named "Twinkle Little Star"! Hope you like it.

Fabulous pillows! Learned about your blog on the Celebrity Bag group and I'm so glad to find it. Hope you post more of your works of art...yes, they look like art to me. Like small fiber art pieces made into pillows and bags. Love it. Appreciate you describing what you use in your pieces too...very inspiring.
