+ hand-sewn patchwork pillow part #010 +

This little pillow is made from the last scraps from the same blue tablecloth as the previous pillow, and this one too is on its way to MS*LS in Vienna as I type this, for the exhibition opening later this month.
Similar to some of the patchwork urns, I used the existing label from the tablecloth and added it to the pillow next to my own label.

As for the previous ones, the extract from the press release says;  

'Using old 2nd hand woven tablecloths found in Danish thrift stores the pillowcases display, on one side, the original pattern of the unaltered tablecloth, and on the other side, a new pattern resulting from manipulated the fabric. This way the old cloth has been given a new function and a new visual identity moving away from the traditional Scandinavian 1950's designs towards a more exotic look.'
