|Vintage embroidery reverse-appliqued.|
Winter is over; it was a long couple of weeks in LA. Here is a little Springtime pillow for you. It is made from a vintage embroidery in cotton threads. I enjoy this technique because of the clipping and cutting and the rush when I think I’ve gone too far. It is machine surged to linen with the excess clipped off. Areas are surged on top of the embroidery and then cut out to reveal the linen underneath creating a lighter more abstract piece.
BTW I can do custom pillows for you.
