What fun it was to look through thegifthutch, searching for items to show you. It made a little disappointed I couldn’t enter the contest !!!!
Joan makes some beautiful pillows, along with sachets, sachets for men, and even a gorgeous sachet to be used as a curtain tieback!
Here’s what Joan says about her work:
“For many years I have been designing and crafting pillows for friends and family. One of the things that influenced this creativity was watching my Mom sew just about everything from cushions to wedding gowns; never using a pattern even for the most complex designs.
As a child, I learned vintage style pillows (triangle folds) from watching my grandmother’s neighbor and friend. Little did I know that the process stayed with me and today I make my own pillow creations incorporating the ideas from those memories. Other vintage style pillows I learned were smock and ribbon weave. These pillows are truly works of art and each finished piece brings much pleasure. The sachet passion began later on as I experimented with smaller pieces of fabric.
I have crafted as a hobby for a very long time. My first crafting experience was making dolls and dolls clothes as a little girl. Crocheting came next, as a young adult, then came Swedish Dawning (hand towels, etc), smocking (pillows), ribbon weaving (pillows, sachets, jewelry cases, etc.), macramé, quilling (picture frames - coasters, wall pieces etc.) and some of my own creations. My love of art and crafts and encouragement from friends and family led me to start sharing my work with you. I hope you will enjoy your items as I have enjoyed creating them.
My aim is to create beautiful enjoyable accents for you, your home and your gift giving.”
