change of pace
Lately I’ve been making crewel embroidered pillows when I need a break from pulling staples and weaving paper cord.
These owls are a vintage design from the MCM period. I like little personal touches like this that fall outside the classic looks you see everywhere.
It’s a completely different mental and physical task, as you can imagine. Fun in a different way.
This one is based on a vintage illustration by Alice and Martin Provensen.
The embroidery is wool and the fabric is a cotton/linen blend in a flax-y color.
I keep thinking I’ll incorporate some different stitches but I end up doing the same few all the time.
These are all currently available at Home Anthology in Catonsville, MD.
Look for a robot pillow in the near future…
