When I found out the favorite colors of my swap partner for an exchange I’m doing on one of the Etsy teams we’re part of… aqua, turquoise, chartreuse and gray…. I decided to put together a pillow sham in the style of the hope embroidery series I’ve been using on organic messenger bags for kids for the past few years.
7 flowers representing the 7 generations that the Iroquois Confederacy famously argued we ought to consider in any deliberation. May the world of my great-great-great-great-great-great grand daughter (and soon to be son) be a beautiful one. My vision of hope and interconnectedness.
With flowers cut from midcentury modern fabric scraps I’ve saved, bits of vintage lace, a wooden button, and a raw silk cocoon (leftover from the silkmaking process). And long, long stems.
For a limited time, we’re going to offer custom orders of these pillow shams in our shop – 18″ hand embroidered hope pillow shams in customers’ favorite colors and fabrics.
