Scrappy Scenic

 

My 35 year old daughter was barely out of nursery school when she and I made this throw pillow for her bed. I took my scraps to my sewing machine and randomly sewed them into a simple house scene. Things like depth, perspective and planning didn’t matter. I just placed each scrap wherever it seemed right and sewed it down. My daughter designed the other side with fabric crayons in much the same way. This is still on her bed about 30 years later!

  1. I LOVE it!! Things like depth, perspective and planning are highly overrated - whatever seems right IS right - ;))

  2. It's gorgeous. I think it has a carefree look and appeal. At least it's stood the test of time.

  3. I think that is called "Intuitive Design." I really like it and I am sure it has special memories for your daughter.

  5. That pillow is great Barbara. It doesn't matter if you have depth it does have design and it sure means a lot with both sides decorated. I love that it is still around.
