The Very Last Gasp...Of The Pillows

Orange and gold pillow.

 


Half of my 2010 Christmas pillows.

 


Tri-color pillow with silk scarf inlay.

 


The tri-color pillow back.

 


I know, I know...

...you thought this day would never come! Giggle.

Yes, this is finally the last of my (many) pillows...

...and I think we will all be happy to move on!

Both of these pillows were gifts for blog-reading friends...

...so I couldn't surprise them with the 'what'.

I did, however, ask for specific color requests...

...so that they would be sure to please their recipients.

The orange and gold pillow was made with ribbon-like wool strips...

...prefelt bits and wool roving.

For the tri-colored pillow, I used wool roving...

...and a section of silk scarf to help connect the colors.

The backing fabric that you see was extra fabric from a long ago project...

...curtains for a house I no longer live in. :)

Love that orange one. Just how many pillows did you make?

Sandie Knapp said...

I am simply amazed at the range of your imagination. Every pillow totally different, and I still can't figure out how you matched the backing, for every one of them, so perfectly to their felted front. It was a monumental task, and you came through it with flying colors. And I do mean that literally! :)

ooooh, the orange and gold is now my official favorite. I love seeing all of your creations.

Deborah--Thanks! Two of them were about to disappear with my daughters back to college after Thanksgiving, so I quickly threw the ones I had finished in a pile and snapped that jumbled photo.

Thanks, Fiona, Sandie, Monika and Andrea! I made over twenty of them when all was said and done...yes I really like the orange one, too. :)

I think it is a fun way of exploring possibilities with the feltingtechnique and adding differnt fibers or laces to it... My compliments!!
Hugs,

Heather Woollove said...

Thanks, Kim! You're right...since they're not too big or 'involved',
it was fun to try out different felting ideas with each one.
