(Another) Embroidered Knit Pillow

January 31, 2019

Another one! Yay!

It’s been a while since I made one of these (you can see the original version here, a colourful version here, and the tutorial teaching you how to make your own here).

I’ve had people reach out over the years asking to buy these, and I’ve always said no (read as: large fear of valuing my work and ok, yes, myself). It’s something I’m seriously looking into now, however, so I figured I’d better make another to a) see if it’s a thing I enjoy and b) see how long it takes. Also, I wanted one to brighten up my living space!

I love this duplicate stitch pattern—it reminds me of the endlessly tall trees on the west coast. It also reminds me of growth, of resilience, and of the beautiful things that can grow from ashes… of seemingly nothing.

If this pillow had a soundtrack it would be Mid-Morning Fog by Arbour and fantompower, no doubt.
