A customer brought me this gorgeous, embroidered wool rug and wanted 2 pillows made from it. I cut it in half and picked the heavy canvas backing off.
The back has a really interesting texture.
She wanted removable inserts. I sewed 2 stuffed pillow forms. For the back of the pillows, I used 2 pieces of muslin, overlapped, to form a zipper-free closure.
Here is the finished back.
The 2 finished pillows. I love the colors!
