Default I love to recycle, found this pillow cover, hand made, hand painted

It was made with really nice cotton fabric, dang nearly perfect stitching, hand painted faces and bamboo. The creator did sign it. I fell in love with the piece especially since it was made really well & with care, I brought it home washed it and proceeded to take it apart. So I made a mug rug, I free motioned all of the background. I made a lavender pin cushion and a needle carry case. I just love it. If you notice I printed my label along with the creators signature. After all she did a wonderful job, and I'm lucky to have found it.
