From the Italian word for quilt, Trapunto is a technique which adds decorative dimension to quilted designs. We used two extra layers of batting and dense lines of quilting to create the trapunto effect for this sweet baby pillow on the embroidery machine. The bottom border of pink or blue is pieced in the hoop to finish the phrase, "...is sleeping" Additional borders with pompom trim and hanging tassels are added on the sewing machine to make a cover just right for 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 rectangle pillow form. Place it on the doorknob whenever baby goes down for a nap as a gentle reminder for big brother and sister to play quietly.
Funny thing about the word modern, as times change, so does its definition. From piecing scraps by hand with needle and thread to our present-day home embroidery machines, the modern sewing movement has had quite the evolution. The combination of a simple patchwork strip with contemporary techniques like quilting in the hoop, gives this zipper pouch a subtle sophistication in all four sizes. Just right for sewing notions, makeup and other essentials, kimberbell zipper pouches are fully lined with no raw edges or stabilizer showing.
