Finished Pillow Covers

I decided to work on two pillow covers at the same time.  It's a lot easier than making one after another.  I'll list one in my Etsy shop.
I sewed all the pieces to a 16 1/2 inch piece of muslin.  It helped stabilize the stretchiness of the wool and get it the right size.

I sewed some "fronds" with some dark purple iridescent glass beads.  Each one came out a little different.

 Finished front.
Finished back.  It has a really deep overlap, it might not need any buttons to stay closed.  Now where is that 16" pillow form?  The back is made from the leg of a cast-off pair of khakis, that's the bottom hem.  I love the worn in look of khakis, just about the time the rest wears out.
