Molas Become Pillows

In all of Cleo's stuff, I have found several molas from Central America. I just love these, so I made matching pillows for our new couch......Look closely...this bird who looks to be some big executive (note the desk and chair) has a cigar in his hand....
while this one is talking on the phone!!
This is not a true mola; it was a Guatemalan jacket that my father gave me in college! I have always kept it and made a large pillow to go in the middle! I LOVE bias seam binding! The binding is all the same in the three pillows---a beautiful batik with purple and orange colorations. I removed the pockets and arranged them on the front. Reuse, reuse, reuse!
