What materials did you use? I have found some wonderful cotton-silk fabrics in the most wonderful vibrant colours in the local markets here in Yangon (Rangoon). The shawl that is wrapped around the base of the cushion is lined with flannel. I used mother of pearl buttons for the closure on the back of the shawl.

What are you most proud of? I have been experimenting with fabric manipulation over the last couple of weeks: smocking, pleating and gathering. I really like the effect a solid fabric can have by adding a little bit of texture. It just says: touch me!

Gorgeous texture. You are just having too much fun with these pillows and your fabric play. You really do have a gift for seeing the possibilities and creating totally original and fabulous projects. I think you're on your way to writing a book! Keep those photos - you'll need them!
