I have always and will always be in love with the works of Portuguese artist Rosa E Chocolate. But except for that it is a pillow and Rosa makes some of the most fabulous pillows I have ever seen, the pillow I'm working on right now has not much to do with her works :) Just thought I'd mention her, since I've been wanting forever to say here how much I'm a fan of hers, and this seemed like an opportunity to do so. So, Rosa, if you ever have time, send me an autograph!
I have this charming cotton tablecloth that I found at the brocante in Fontvielle a few months ago, and I knew I wanted to make decorative pillows with it.
My friend Tara once said I should embroider my fairytales on pillowcases, that way you can read yourself to sleep. She was joking. I took her seriously.
The photos here show the initial sketch and some details of my Jasmine Fairytale Pillow.
I still have to work on it some more, but if this turns out nice, it'll probably be my entry to the European Street Team's weekly creative challenge. This week's theme is "Things That Go Bump in The Night." Challenge king Frances has all the details in her blog here. Now I just have to convince the king that Jasmine IS scary. I mean do you want to be nine years old forever, lice, runny nose, and all? Shudder.
