Victorian Autumn- pillow decor

Am terminat perna inceputa saptamana trecuta si care mi-a luat ceva timp deoarece au intervenit schimbari de la o zi la alta in ceea ce priveste design-ul ei. Nu ma puteam hotari la ce va ramane si ce voi adauga.
Dimensiunile ei sunt cele standard, cel putin pentru Statele Unite, de 16x16 inches.
Pentru inceput am folosit tehnica Smarandei - aplicatii de curbe cusute manual cu punct invisibil
I finished the pillow started last week and took me some time since there have been changes from day to day in terms of its design. I could not agree on what remains and what I add. Dimensions are the standard, at least for the United States, 16x16 inches.
At the beginning I used the Smaranda tehcnique- sewed hand curves with invisible point

Apoi am trecut la quiltuit-ul pernei cu un model ales specific toamnei- frunze de mesteacan- si apoi si free motion , care mi-a placut tare mult
Then I switched to quilt the top of pillow with a specific chosen pattern autumn-leaf birch and then I tryed free motion, which I liked very much .

Si spatele, care are un material cu niste flori micute maron
And the back that is a fabric with some little brown flowers.

Dupa care am brodat pe un colt al pernei o victorian lady cu ata oranj, i-am adaugat cateva ornamente pe palarie iar parul i l-am brodat si cu fir auriu.
After I embroidery on a corner of the pillow a Victorian lady with orange thread, I added a few ornaments on the hat and hair and I embroidery with gold thread.

Bordura pernei este din material grena pe care am aplicat dantela ecru pentru efectul de vintaje. Dosul pernei are culoarea tutunului; nu este quiltuit.
Si asta e perna care va lua drumul magazinului

The border of pillow is dark red fabric that I applied for ecru lace for vintaje effect. The back are tobacco color, it is not quilted.
And this is the pillow

Este o perna de salon pentru o camera decorata in stil victorian sau retro din lemn masiv.
Am ales sa fie in stil vintage, o imbinare de culori "pamantesti" si culori de toamna - are aspect per ansamblu de "greu" ca sa spun asa..
A fost foarte incitant sa lucrez o astfel de perna cu multe elemnte, un stil care iti permite sa improvizezi si sa adaptezi elemente, un stil care imi place.
Cred ca voi relua "tema" in curand pentru o alta perna pentru ca am constatat ca imi place in mod deosebit stilul vintage.

It is a pillow for the living room decorated in Victorian style or retro wood.
I chose to be in vintage style, a compilation of "earth " colors and autumn colors - has overall issue of "heavy" to say so ..
It was very exciting to work such a pillow with many items, a style that lets you improvise and adapt elements, a style that I like.
I think I will resume the theme soon for another pillow because I found that I like in vintage style in particular.
