I was initially drawn to the intense color and bold pattern on this piece. But I really fell in love with all the hand done detailing like the rainbow stitched spine and the knotted hem.  In its former life I guessing it was a blanket, but it wouldn’t be too hard to whip this bad boy into a shower curtain! or maybe even and oversized upholstered ottoman? I really wish i knew more about when and how this really unique piece was created, so share any insights if you’ve got ’em!

couldn’t be crazier for this color combo – avocado, rust, tangerine, flamingo pink, and bright bright yellow.  so unexpected and so perfect. it’s a tiny tiny scrap, so no big sewing project in its future but i’ll definitely keep it around for inspiration.
