Kind Words, Kind Thoughts, Kind Deeds. An inspiring verse.
Kind Words Pillow has been hand stitched much in the same way as samplers were hundreds of years ago. A simple willow tree has been added along with a wool sheep standing on a grassy surface.
Coffee Dyed and Oven Dried
This pillow has been coffee dyed and oven dried for an aged effect. Around the Kind Words stitchery is a cotton border. The background is dark chocolate with tangerine stars. Scattered amidst the stars are shapes in tangerine and mustard. This border make a beautiful choice to accent the stitchery.
The backing is made from chestnut colored chenille upholstery fabric. Last but not least, Kind Words pillow has been rag -filled for an authentic aged feel and appearance.
Consequently, this pillow is one of a kind. each pillow of this design has different borders and backing. Consequently, this pillow is one of a kind.
What is Rag-fill?
Rag-fill consists of using all clean fabrics. Scraps of fabric, edges cut off, discarded fabrics of any kind upholstery, cottons and even cotton quilt batting are used.
Clothing with stains, or just wore out also get washed, then cut up and used to fill pillows.
In using rag-fill I believe the weight and feel of the pillow is in keeping with vintage and antique pillows.
