Look See Pillow Cover
A while back, I carved a linoleum block with the words "Look" and "See." Originally, I used it to make some eyeglass/sunglass cases for my shop.
I wanted to play around with the words some more. Sometimes it is fun to break out and make a bold design and that's what I felt like doing today.
Prior to appliqueing the glasses, I used fusible web to attach two pieces of my handprinted "Look See" fabric onto the pillow front. I quilted the front of the pillow with random straight lines in white thread. Then I fused the eyeglasses and appliqued them with black thread.
The back is a piece of fabric that I hand printed, as well, and quilted similarly. The binding fabric is a home dec fabric in a textured chartreuse.
It is fun graphic image but it can be deep too...do you look or do you really see? Hmmmmmmmm....
