Madeira rayon embroidery thread on satin and cotton
My pillow book is a soft intractable object, I made using a Tajima 15 needle digital embroidery machine and hand sewing for the construction. The images were drawn and designed in Adobe Illustrator from my own reference photographs of people who are close to me. I then translated the illustrator file to a digital embroidery file in the embroidery program. This book is meant to be tender, like a stuff animal or something one could sleep next to.
