Craft Book Challenge

CBC No. 1 — Crystal Pillow

This is the first piece from my Craft Book Challenge (CBC). I created the pillow from a design in the book, Silk Unraveled called “Crystal Pillow.” It came out pretty good except for the buckling in the back which cannot be seen in the photo. I think I overstuffed it. Ugh!

Anyway, it was challenging cutting out and stitching the muslin crystal top layer. The best part was finally using some sari silk that I had been hesitant to use because it’s so delicate and beautiful. But, I took the plunge and cut it into narrow strips which produced the colorful spiraled layer under the crystal shape. The background is lightweight denim. I glued a flower cut from some floral trim onto the center.
