I am beyond excited to finally show you the big reveal of my embroidery pillow design that I’ve been teasing you with for the past few months!!
After designing the Sun Kissed Harvest collection I was very inspired to design another pillow embroidery. And the focal “Sunflower Bouquet” was the biggest inspiration of all, I love it so much and wanted to spread the love by translating that into an embroidery project. My coworkers definitely thought I was crazy for taking on such an ambitious task, but I think it was well worth it and am in love with my embroidery and my new pillow.
The pillow is a 20 x 20 square, and it’s an envelope style…so overall construction is super easy. All the work is in the embroidery. I wanted the embroidery to have a variety of stitches so it’s multi dimensional. I used the Backstich, Stem Stitch, Jenni Chain Stitch and Colonial Knot. You may be asking, “what is a Jenni Chain Stitch?” Well…it’s my twist on a conventional “Chain Stitch”, otherwise known as a happy mistake. Ha ha!
I loved every minute of working on this, but now I love that it’s finished and I can finally display it in my home. Our company’s CEO, Matt, expressed great interest in my pillow and joked with me about purchasing it. But I let him know that it was not for sale and that is was all for me.
