Memory Pillows

  1. These small cushions are a great way to display a favorite photo of our loved ones. I have two more cushions to finish. Not a good photograph, displaying the results.  I print the image onto the fusible fabric that I use for reproducing our vintage images. The resolution is excellent. I print the photos in black and white to avoid the distraction of color. All the braid and fringe are hand-sewn to the edges. I use brocades for the backing fabrics, that I've collected from Scalamandre. I add a label on the back of the cushion with the date and name of the persons in the photos. Each braid trim, around the photograph is embellished, with a vintage button from my stash.
