Another Old Project

A small cushion made of silk dupioni, embroidery done in cotton. The earrings are made of vintage glass beads and brass. I think I wore them once before realizing I was allergic to the metal. Whoops.

I pinned the earrings in place in order to ascertain where I should embroider loops which would hold earrings. I later gave the cushion away with a different pair of earrings attached.

The embroidery pattern is from the book Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts, Wooly Embroidery, a Chronicle Book, pictured below. The designer’s credit goes to Tae Sasao.
