African print fabric / Using Appliques and Yarn on pillows

Is it time to refresh your pillows for Summer?  Sometimes taking an old pillow you love and dressing it up a bit is all you need.  Plus it’s fun to see how creative you can be. I saw this fun pom-pom trim at Hobby Lobby, and thought how cute it would be to accent a bohemian pillow I made a while back.
