Cluck Cluck says the Hen!



My newest pillow is in the shop.  Made from a page taken out of a 1963 fabric book, I created the pillow by sewing the page onto 1950's-era feedsack material.  A Kansas State Fair ribbon from 1933 was cut down to size and bias trim added.  At the top of the ribbon, I created a rosette using chiffon fabric and then added a safety pin to attach the piece to the pillow.


The back is done using vintage sheet fabric sewn in an envelope-style.  I edged the opening with green bias tape.  The pillow form inside is a vintage, thrifted feather pillow.



It pairs well with the cow pillow, also listed.
