My version of a Look Book

I've been trying to put together a "Look Book" to send to my customers, but everytime I get down to it I get overwhelmed. So this morning I decided why make a full book, why not just showcase a few of my favorite items every few days. Not so overwhelming for me, or too much info to bore customers. This is what I came up with:
XY Factory Rockstar Look of the Day

Beaded Pillows

I remember my mom making sequins, beaded pins when I was little. Hearts for Valentines Day, Christmas trees, Jack o Lanterns, you name the occasion she had a pin for it. She let me make a few every now and then. Recently I found the cutest fabrics, I wanted to make pillows with it but felt they needed a little extra something to make them stand out from the crowd. I pulled out a box of sequins and seed beads while cleaning my office and I remembered those pins my mom made. I sat down and started sewing them to the fabric. My mom was here last week, she helped me with beading the pillows. WOW is she fast, for every 1 I made she had finished 2. It's been fun and relaxing beading the fabric panels. I actually have so many more ideas I would like to bead. Here are some of the finished pillows. I'm planing a tutorial to be posted soon :)
These are currently for sale in my etsy shop
