and in a different light…
Completely ruined or uniquely vintage??
In a moment when I should have been doing something else entirely.. I decided to pull the stuffing out of this and give it a tea/coffee dyed facelift. Obviously the thread wasn’t anything like colorfast! I almost tossed it but gave a big sniff, filled it with walnut and sewed it shut. I think I either love it or hate it.
What do you think?
PS This is Peacock Pin Pillow by Beehive Needleworks, stitched on 40 linen with 1 non colorfast strand of thread! Most hand-dyed threads are now colorfast, I stitched this a while ago with older thread.
