My Snow Owl Pillow is featured on the Fat Quarterly Blog ! The Shades of Grey Designer Challenge was a bit of a struggle (I wrote all about it on Fat Quarterly so I won't bother you all with an account of the difficult process) but in the end I was quite pleased with the result! Jan DiCintio's Shades of Grey fabrics are a joy to work with. The subtle greys go great with almost any other colour and the designs are slightly retro but modern at the same time. A perfect combination as far as I am concerned!
I tried to echo the retro feel in the embroidered O W L letters. On Pinterest I found a link to a great resource for cross stitched and embroidered lettering.
You won't find these exact designs in there, but the book (it was from
the early seventies I think) was a huge inspiration for the embroidered letters.
I'm actually thinking of making this design (or something similar) into a pattern so every one can have their own Snow Owl Pillow!
