Type of item: Home Decor
I used fabrics that I didn't like to see what result I would get. I did a lot of machine stitching with metallic thread. I named this pillow carnival because it reminds me of the colors of Carnival in Trinidad.
What was your inspiration?
At first my inspiration was to challenge myself to do a project with materials I did not like. As it evolved the challenge and inspiration came to make it look appealing. I questioned when enough is enough. The instructor inspired getting over the need to control the outcome. That helped a lot.
What are you most proud of?
There were many times that I wanted to start over with fabric that I liked. I am glad that I worked all the way through it and am happy with the results.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't worry, be happy!
