Subway Art Pillow

Front
I made this easy subway art pillow and you can too...I purchased iron on numbers from Hobby Lobby. I ironed them on a heavy twill light brown material. I then used my sewing machine to zigzag around each number so it would be secure and add texture. Each number has a soft fuzzy feel. I used brush fringe on the edges in colors of tan, green, and  deep red.
Back
On the back of the pillow, I used coordinating fabric and made an overlap button closure. I think the pillow looks good from either side which makes it a more versatile pillow. The background has a more golden hue than in this picture. Terry
