Pilot Fancy Stitches Cushion • 20x20 (S-I)
~15 inches tall by 22 inches wide
Pretty pillows covered in fancy stitches! Playfully designed and carefully finished over many hours of meditative hand stitching, they are just as fun to make as they are intricate! This pillow was created with some of Jen's first experiments with this process.
Stylized wool blossoms are cut out freehand, sewn in place by hand – and then the real fun begins! Each and every piece of wool is hand-stitched in place and more layers of hand-stitching are added. More texture is added with loops of sari ribbon + fancy yarns pulled up by hand, using a traditional rug hook. The piece is further embellished with free-hand quilting around all of the shapes + in the negative space (doodling with the machine)
Made with attention to detail + only quality ingredients, this cushion features Jen's hand-dyed wool flannel fabric on the front and Jen has quilted Brown Wave Japanese cotton fabric for the back. It's carefully finished with an invisible zippered closure (yes, the cover is removable!) + filled with a quality feather-down insert, custom made in Nova Scotia. Canadian made, inside + out.
TRULY UNIQUE - Jen made only one cushion like this!
Custom orders are welcome!
Care Instructions. Resilient and simple to care for, wool naturally repels water and stains. Soak up spills when they happen. Simply vacuum, dry brush or dab gently with a damp cloth to spot clean the wool as needed. If a more thorough cleaning is necessary, remove cover and dry clean.
All Fish Eye Sisters products are specially designed and completely handmade by Jen in her studio just north of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada.
