Hello to you May Arts Bloggers. My name is Holly Duffin and I am a fine artist living in Geneva, Illinois. I am so excited to show you what I have made for the Challenge.
May Arts Ribbon so graciously supplied me with the most beautiful, soft ribbon the other day. So I had to make something unique and beautiful. I thought and thought about what I wanted to make…should I make pretty scarves, should I make a weaving, something expected….well, I decided to make a unique, one of a kind Ribbon/Puff pillow. So, here it is and the progression of my piece.
Sandwiching the luscious ribbon between Solvy Fabric.
Pinning, pinning, pinning.
Machine sewing and sewing and sewing.
Time to disintegrate the Solvy, dunking into warm water over and over again.
So cool, it looks like fabric now, but it’s RIBBONS!
Laying out my new ribbon fabric to dry, it’s a hot day today, only took 30 minutes to dry.
Here it is, this is what I have to work with, so pretty!
I made up a little Art Pillow to wrap my new fabric onto. I made little sewn Pillow Puff tubes and filled them with stuffing.
Detail of Pillow Puffs, so fun and easy to make.
Now its time to place my new Ribbon Fabric onto the pillow.
Covering the back of the pillow and hand sewing into place.
And, WahLa, my new Ribbon Art Pillow is complete.
I had a few friends come over today and they all said, “Where did you get that pillow, that is SO cool”. Two orders coming right up. Tanner my adorable 10 year old thinks the new pillow is a football, “Catch Mom!”
So there you have it, Easy as Pie little Art Pillow to brighten you or your friends day. Thank you May Arts, you are the bomb, I couldn’t have made this cool pillow without your ribbons.
