Pattern Description:

This pillow is a wonderful example for a Think Green! project re-using discarded clothing. (Denim) Shirts are great for making very cool pillow covers since the button-facing does very nicely as closure and makes the inserting of a zipper unnecessary.
The other side of the pillow - the side which is cut from the back of the shirt - is embellished with machine-appliqu(c)d flowers. Continuing with the green theme, the flowers were cut from vintage blue and white bed linen from old Bavarian farmhouses.
