Fabric Scarps = OOAK Present for Grandma

The last semi-successful craft project I completed was an envelope pillow for my grandmother's 70th birthday. I found the silk fabric in the sale section at Urban Outfitters. It was originally supposed to act as art; it was stapled to a wooden frame like canvas and the sea-green flowers were painted on the silk. I rescued it for $5 and figured it had a fabulous future ahead of it. 

It looked so perfect with a tapestry I had draped over the arm of the couch that I was tempted to keep it for myself. 

This was my first attempt at an envelope style pillow, and I messed up on the envelope part. The canvas (left over from a grocery bag project) is supposed to be on the inside and the silk is supposed to flap over. But grandma will never know the difference...
