WordPressers, I present to you the newest addition to my Hmong Pillow Collection, Hmong Boy! (Don’t you love the names I give to my pillows?) >_<
Compare to my very first original boy version, I didn’t change to many things but added more color to it. Hope you like. 🙂
Find this pillow at my Etsy shop.
A few posts back I mentioned possibly designing another pillow for my Hmong collection, and I did! Hope you like. 🙂
I also have one more pillow to share and hope to have it up by tomorrow. =]
Good Night WordPressers!
I completed my pillows with the common swirls found in Hmong clothing. I love how they turned out, so silky and shimmery! I used charmeuse satin fabric and appliqued my design on. They are 16×16 and about 6 inches deep. Hope you like. 🙂
After making these pillows I realize I love shiny things. *_* Oh yah, therefore I decide I’m going to make a Page and list random things I like. 😉
After planning on them for the past few months, I believe I am finally ready to share my Hmong pillows. I made three pillows representing my favorite Hmong hats. Although not exactly true to the real thing, anyone can probably pick out the resemblance. I’m so tickle to have these pillows completed and shared on here. Here they are!
These pillows are also at my Etsy shop.
There is one more hat I would like to add to the collection so I might have another update on these later on in the month. I hope you enjoy these pillows!
I was also viewing my Hmong clothing this morning and admiring all the detail work my mom had put time into making. It’s amazing how there are so many little hand stitches! I don’t have the patience for it and for the past few years I’ve tried making my very own Hmong outfit multiple times but it never goes well. I wish I would have paid more attention to my mom when she was teaching us girls how to sew and cross stitch! If she were closer, I’d bug her to teach me again. If anyone has tips in making traditional Hmong clothing, I’d love to hear em! Thank you!
I’ve been planning my Hmong pillows for awhile now and I think I’m almost done with them. I know I get excited about a lot of things, but I am REALLY excited about these. One of the reasons why is because all my pillow ideas actually originated from them.
You might be wondering “Hmong? What is that?” My background is Hmong and honestly…I don’t even know where to start if I’m going to try and explain, so I won’t. 🙂 There has even been numerous times in the past where I even went to Google for help trying to learn more about my culture. *Chuckle* So instead of explaining I will be designing simple pillows incorporating my culture into them. Hope to have them posted soon. 🙂
These are the first pillows I made a few weeks ago. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make but I did some quick doodles and before the night was over I had my first tiny little pillow. The girl wears a traditional purple Hmong turban and the boy has a black cap. I hand stitch the small ones and then sewed the two bigger ones. The small ones are about size 5×5 and 4×4. The larger ones are 16×16. I originally didn’t have a tiny little sweat bullet on the boy in my drawing but decided to add it in once I made it because my husband recommend it. 🙂 The big pillow however also doesn’t have the sweat bullet because I didn’t have any good fabric color to represent it! I’m planning on revising the design and making it better. Aren’t they cute though?
