I have a deep abiding love for this pillow! Let's explore the anatomy of it's construction and then the options with a variety of fabrics.
The final layer is a decorative textile scene that ties over the sleeve
The underside of the decorative textile is lined in ticking. It's size did not fully wrap the sleeve so an extra bit of slubby linen was added to extend around the form. Finally tied to secure.
Same bolster and sleeve, as will be shown repeatedly. Overlaying the top is an imprinted linen from Kravet
Another overlay from Manuel Canovas
A classic Ralph Lauren plaid
This image has another fabric added to the mix, a ticking which could line the plaid
-a bolster in a charcoal/brown slubby linen, does not have to be slubby, I just love the European fabrics and the depth of texture.
-a shagreen in pale mint green
-a stripped ticking as backing for
-the beautiful Cowtan & Tout embroidered linen overlay which has a kiss of mint green in the embroidery
Same combination excluding the shargeen and exposing the ticking as the sleeve
Imrinted linen by Jane Churchill and ruffled velvet
What do you think? Can you see trying out this concept?
Need any help, just ask, we have a great seamstress in our team
And speaking more to an abiding love, this is Cooper, our over indulged Welsh Cardigan Corgi.
