little milagro inspired lavender pillow: eyes
*ONE OF A KIND*
I love the imagery and symbolism of milagros [translation: "miracles"] - the religious folk charms of Mexico, Latin America, and the Southern US...they are traditionally used for healing purposes, as an offering, or for protection. No wonder that I am feeling especially drawn towards them during this time. I was was recently putting together remnant bundles and felt inspired to stitch these pillows on some of the scraps of plant-dyed organic cotton/linen I was finding.
Materials: plant dyed organic cotton/linen - blue (dyed with indigo), cotton thread (black & red), organic lavender buds
Size: about 3.5 x 4"
