Hello Everyone, I am back again today to show you a project that is very near and dear to me. The last few weeks, I have been making pillowcases for a project, so today, I decided to add some of my favorite embellishments to a pillowcase.

These pillowcases are really fast and pretty simple to make, though, the first couple did take me a little longer than I had hoped they would. Honestly, picking out the material is harder than I imagined it would be. Have you been to a fabric store lately? It is worse then going to the candy store... all of those selections, all that fabulous material, so much to chose from, what is a girl to do?

This fabulous material I picked up while shopping at Walmart. I always have to check out their selections, and in doing so, I found this material and thought it would be perfect for a pillowcase.

After I got the pillowcase completed, I laid out ALL my Pinque Peacock Garden Beauties to see which one would work for this project.

So many options.

Many of them would, but I liked this one the best. I like how the pink in the flower pulled out the pink in the pillowcase.

Because of the project I am working on, I am unsure if an embellishment of this type can be added, so to be 100% forthcoming, this Garden Beauty is simply tacked on at this time. Should this be acceptable, I will take the garden beauties apart, and applique each layer on one at a time. Then, instead of the brad in the middle, I will replace it with a pretty colorful button.

It is a pretty fast project, and in the end, I hope to put a smile on a lot of faces with this project.
