Creative Tuesdays - Pillows

Well Mr T, I took you at your word!  One pillow, although a small one.  I wanted to pratice my freehand sewing machine work with some dyeing and painting of fabric, as well as trying to keep my whimsical style.  Three days ago this was a plain piece of white cotton fabric.  The fish has been painted in pearlescent paint, so sewing all the details was a bit heavy going at times.  All the stitching was done freehand on my sewing machine. But, although it took me awhile to complete, I must admit I am a bit chuffed with it. It also has quite a tactile feel to it.

This is the fish on the flat before it was turned into a pillow.

  1. Oh Linda, you are so talented! This is a beautiful pillow!

    1. Thank you so much Christine, I did enjoy doing it.

  2. Beautiful work Linda, truly amazing :o)

  3. Wow, what a wonderful interpretation on our theme Linda! Lovely free motion stitching, you out did yourself.

  4. Yes, wow!, Linda. Love the fishy pillow. The detail in the stitching would have taken me forever. The colors are gorgeous as well. You've inspired me for sure. Tracy

  5. Linda,
    The use of complementary colours is terrific. I love the colours and such a wonderful fish. How do you do the stitching? I can barely sew straight.

  6. Wow, that is an absolutely incredible work of art and dedication too. I'm SO glad you really did a pillow. (Must admit, was rather hoping you would make/design one.) I love the plant work under the fish and the wonderful swirling lines. What an awesome fish too, I might add. Really wonderful, Linda. I'd say YOU were the one who outdid yourself. Chuffed you jolly well should be. Thank you for taking the time to do this and show it to us all.

  7. I love this. The colours, the fish, the detail of the stitching - you can practically see him/her swimming!
