Interwoven Orange Mini I

This unique little square accent pillow measures just 9.5" (24cm) and started life as a piece of unprimed artist's cotton canvas. I hand printed various shapes onto the canvas using acrylic paint. I then ripped the canvas into strips and wove them back together adding in random pieces of velvet ribbon and hand dyed silk organza. 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 and the pillow is stuffed with polyester toy fill.
