I’m just gonna say it. I’m super pleased with how this sashiko embroidered pillow came out. Styled after Japanese Boro textiles, works like this make certain that nothing in the studio goes to waste. The smallest scraps prove a useful and artful purpose. For a truly multi-cultural fiber experience, I included the Dala Horse motif as part of the imagery and pattern. The fabrics include antique quilt squares and cottons, recycled denim, and homespun cotton. Bordered and backed with antique European homespun linen, this generous pillow is is filled with the highest quality stuffing I could find.
