Opinions please

I am thinking of finishing The Key to my Heart as a cushion/pillow.  What do you think of something like this? What would you change?  Any other ideas? I have some thinner ricrac in the same colour and a length of leather thong that would work colourwise too.


Now obviously when I put it together, things will be straight and even but I couldn't get everything to lay flat.

The little buttons are great.  I got them from here. The customer service was great and whilst their prices aren't the cheapest around good customer service and cheap postage can make up for that.  I ordered the buttons and 2 pieces of Ric Rac and paid 28p postage.  That's not even the price of a second class stamp!

I'm completely useless when it comes to finishing and being creative. I think that you plan is great and the finishings you've picked are beautiful. I have no doubt it'll look amazing!

Looks perfect to me. Pillows are my favourite finishing.
