This peony motif was excised from a pair of ugly, ill-fitting $2 thrift store capri pants. The fabric is linen, and I really liked the color and print. It just didn't make for an attractive pair of pants.
So, I embellished the peony with some stitching and beading, stuffed it with batting and a little lavender sachet, and voila'! A lovely little lavender scented pin cushion. Say that three times fast ;)
