According to Wiki, "Crewel Embroidery, or Crewelwork, is a decorative form of surface embroidery using wool and a variety of different embroidery stitches to follow a design outline applied to the fabric." Usually wool yarns are used for Crewel work, but I used general cotton floss instead. Because the issue of the magazine was for Spring and Summer, so I wanted to give fresh and cool feeling to the pillow.
I used many kinds of stitches and techniques on this piece for expressing delicate detail of flowers. The colors of the embroidery design were inspired by the silk plaid fabric which I used for the frame. I used many colors and they are all from kinda same tone group. I like smokey pastel colors a lot.
