Jean’s Pillow

This wonderful pillow cover is sized to fit a king size insert.  The art and the main body fabric came from the client. Her tipi had carried these paintings for all the years it lived in her yard. She wanted to have a remembrance of it’s presence to savor even longer. The striped wool felt of the body was recycled from a favorite coat. The leather trim framing each image,  the end button flaps, fringe, and the long edge binding all are hand sewn. This creates a roughness that compliments all the parts. Deer skin of various types and colors and deer antler rosette buttons finish the whole piece. Front or back, either side has a full presentation. Bison today, sun’s and mountains tomorrow. I love working on projects that have a life of their own and are personal to the receiver. Your ideas and my skills, a perfect combination. What could be better than that?
