Domestitchery is where we take a look at how talented people make ordinary domestic items extraordinary through creative needlework.
I’m sure I’m like a lot of crafty people in that my decorating style isn’t particularly crafty-looking, but I love hand wrought details and appreciate individual artistry in my interiors. That’s why these particular throw pillows appealed to me when Beefranck shared them.
Thimbletop handstitches a variety of styles of throw pillows, but this was my favorite. It’s a practical size, visually interesting and obviously not mass-produced. Check out her etsy store to see her range.
This pillow from Lost City’s Forensic line has now become a part of my fantasy to redecorate my entire (dream) house just for Halloween.
