Another Burlap Pillow
This is definitely a decorative pillow - all those buttons wouldn't feel very good to sit up against. If you make this pillow, all you need is burlap material, canvas material, buttons, and patience.
This pillow was another pillow in which I spent some quality time with Em: I sewed on the buttons while watching a Barbie movie with Em. Em would hand me the buttons to sew (and sometimes she would even thread them on the needle) and once I had sewn on about 10 buttons, I then tied it off, that way if it breaks at some point, I only have to mend a small section of the pillow.
It was an odd way to spend quality time with Em, but that was the first time I'd let her handle a needle and I know I poked myself way more than she did. :)

I focus on art that will benefit animals. I donate 10% of profits to animal rescue groups that I'm working with and I provide custom dry brush oil paintings to honor working dogs and their owners (K9s, Military Working Dogs, Therapy animals, Equine therapy animals, Contract Working Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs etc).
