Interwoven Blue I

This unique 16"/35cm pillow/cushion cover started life as aa series of artworks that I created while studying towards my Visual Arts Diploma.  

They were created by hand printing various shapes onto unprimed artist's cotton canvas using acrylic paint. I then ripped the canvas into strips and wove them back together adding in random pieces of velvet ribbon and silk organza that I had dyed into complementary colours. This weaving was then randomly machine stitched onto a calico backing to form this lush and luxurious cushion cover.

The back is made from sturdy unprimed artist's cotton canvas with a zip closure

This cover is currently available in my etsy store
