hybrid pillow

I’ve already posted my initial idea and design for the hybrid assignment, so this post is all about the fabrication.

 Before activating the laser cutter, I first had to place the leather between two sheets of card so that it was uniformly flat and secure.

Above is the impression of my design left on the bottom piece of card, it was surprisingly quite beautiful!

The leather was glued to a sheet of calico it was then placed face down and sewn on three edges to another piece of calico of the same size. Finally it was turned the right way out and a pillow insert was placed inside before it was sewn shut. Viola!!!!
