Abstract Embroidery Pillow
This cushion is made of a lot of pieces of cloth which I totally without reason amassed me. You know, one of those maniacal savings to justify a questionable “Could be good to have” and then you sit there a few years later with three ica bags filled with rubbish and wondering what the hell happened. To get a reason to use tygskräpet I decided to make a pillow. I cut strips about 1 cm wide, of the fabric. As a base I used jute.
I drew the first strip by sewing a few stitches at one end.
Twisted fabric strip …
… And began to sew with big stitches in a pattern freehand.
Does it show what I mean?
It is pretty fun, but takes quite a long time. Imagine that you can cut fabric strips a little wider to get it to go faster.
Seventy-Eleven years and a minor psychological meltdown later you have something that looks like this:
Jute fabric have a tendency to bunch and SNEA to itself, but it readily rectified by moistening the design and then squeeze the iron (with towel on top).
To charter the design further, I emphasized even on the little Flizelin on the back.
The rest of the cushion sewn in a wool fabric left over from a jacket.
