Foiled Elephant Pillow

I adore being a designer for Therm O Web.  Most of the time we, as designers, get to make what we want as long as we’re featuring there product.  Sometimes we get a more specific assignment … I like to take these as a challenge.  We were challenged to make a mixed media product that featured the new iCraft® Mixed Media Sheets (coming soon!!) and the new watercolored iCraft Deco Foil sheets.  I was in!

Elephant Sketch

I couldn’t get this elephant I had sketched out of my head so I started there … and came up with this guy.

I stitched him, I foiled him and then it was time quilt him.

I wanted to do something more here though .. it wasn’t enough “mixed media” for my taste yet.  So I played some more with the iCraft® Mixed Media Sheets , watercolored iCraft Deco Foil, and a lighter … yup, I wanted to see what happened when I burned the edges.

It was the perfect effect!

Do you feel like I’m only telling you part of the story here … I sort of am.  Head on over to Therm O Web’s blog to see the whole story and more of the process!
