Custom-made Pillow Covers for Catbird April 4, 2011

Filed under: Pillow covers,Uncategorized — Nagisa Wada @ 11:06 pm

I made few custom-made pillow covers for Catbird on Bedford ave, Brooklyn. The store chose the fabrics, so I just sewed the pillows. But since they are so beautiful, I decided to post them here! You can’t really see them in the photos in their blog, but please check them out if you happen to be in the neighborhood! Address is 219 Bedford Ave. Brooklyn NY 11222 (across the street from Mini Mall)!

ベッドフォードアベニューにあるCatbirdというお店で扱っているクッションカバーを作りました。お店のほうが布を選んだので、本当に縫うだけのお仕事だったのですが、とても綺麗な仕上がりだったので、Makuraのブログに載させて頂きます。Catbirdのブログの写真に写っているのですがちょっと分かり辛いですね・・・近所に行くことがあったら、是非立ち寄って見て下さい!住所は219 Bedford Ave. Brooklyn NY 11222 (ミニモールの向かえです!)

More Bird Song Pillows February 5, 2011

Bird Song Pillows in pink and purple. Each has the same piece of fabric on the both front and back. They look different but the  image is continuous. I always hesitate when I cut Etsuko Furuya’s fabrics because they are just so perfect as they are! It’s an art piece!

古家悦子さんのBird Song のピンクと紫のクッションカバーです。前後の生地は違う生地を使っている様に見えるのですが一枚の布から成り立っています。 古家さんの生地は切る時、切ってしまうのがもったいなくて、いつも躊躇してしまいます。そのままで十分芸術です!

I love “echino” fabrics designed by Etsuko Furuya, a young (not sure how old she is…) Japanese textile designer. Her colors are so bright and her design is very unique . I don’t find anything like her design anywhere! I used her textile for Ba-pacs also. Her fabrics make me want to design my own fabric! Maybe in the future I will 🙂

若手の日本人テキスタイルデザイナー(年齢は分からないのですが、若いと見た・・・)古家悦子さんのブランド”echino”がとても気に入っています。繊細な色とユニークなデザイン。 彼女のデザインは他のデザイナーの生地には見ることが出来ません。 彼女の生地はBa-Pacにも使用しました。 私も自分の生地をデザインしたいなあ~と思わせてくれる作品です。 いつか出来たらいいですね!

 

Handpainted pillow-Peacock January 5, 2011

This peacock lives at the Bronx Zoo. We went to the zoo in November in the cold weather. The zoo was pretty empty and many animals weren’t outside. We were walking around looking for animals and all of the sudden this peacock jumped and landed in front of us! He was walking around on the path and he certainly didn’t care about us! I took some pictures and he was walking down with us. It was such an unusual site!

 

Handpainted Pillow – Goldfish November 20, 2010

This goldfish is actually my fish and her name is Felicity. She is beautiful and I really wanted to make a pillow of her. The back of the pillow is brown and it has a green cording around. The color combination of brown and green gives somewhat calming and serene feelings to the pillow.

This is an image of a giraffe that I saw in Seattle. I fed it few leaves and it was a lot of fun! I was amazed by the color of its tongue! Have you seen a giraffe tongue? It’s purple! Anyway, I think this pillow is very colorful and fun and would be a beautiful accent for your kid’s room!
