Pink and White Portrait Pillows

The picture on the left is my Grandmother and Grandfather's wedding portrait. The one on the right is Aunt Ella, my grandfather's sister. Aren't they beautiful? I wanted to enjoy them without ruining the photographs, so I made these pillows for my bed. They are hand beaded all around the edge, in various sized pearls. Fabric is cream and pale pink print. This set of pillows was the start of Portrait Pillows, Bags and more. Who knew? One pillow just lead to another. At first I thought people would like them - and called them 'Instant Ancestors'. I was half right. They did like them, but wanted them with their own family photos. Joey and Amy predicted this.
