Today I want to share with you the pillow project that has been keeping me so very busy. I am not complaining. I am happy to be busy.
We are headed into Wedding Season, so I created these sweet Wedding Pillows for my sale last week. My inspiration was carved initials in a tree. There is something so sweet,simple, and lasting in seeing a couple's initials carved into a tree. Each pillow is monogrammed with the couple's first initials on the front, and then in a small heart on the back of the pillow is the couple's wedding date.
I used homespun linen to create this pillow, with a beige embroidery thread. Homespun linen is linen is fabric that was weaved by hand 80-120 years ago by European women at their home looms. Homespun linen is a rare find, so if you want to recreate the look, using a new heavy weight linen will also work.
These pillows are approximately 25 inches long by 17 inches high. Because of the size, a standard down pillow will work as the form. They are the perfect size for a bed, or couch.
I would love to hear what you think about this pillow.
Thanks for joining me today!
