Shabby Chic Embroidered Bird Pillow

At the end of August and through the first week or so of September, the weather turned cool.  It was if one day the switch was flipped and we went from summer immediately into fall.  But now the weather has switched back a bit and warm, mid-80 degree days have seeped in once again.  Even though the leaves are changing and falling, there's still a hint of summer in the air.

So when I sat down to sew pillows yesterday, I grabbed a summery vintage table linen from my stash and couldn't resist creating a new piece with this adorable pattern:




The little birds with their pink undersides are simply adorable!  I backed the pillow with vintage fabric in a pink and white-striped design.



The pillow is listed here.
