Michigan Hand-Guided Machine Pillow by Catstudio

This original design celebrates the amazing State of Michigan in great detail - from Battle Creek to Holland (yes they have Tulips) to the Porcupine Mountains!!!
Using vintage sewing machines (they don't build 'em like they used to) the fabric is turned this way and that way allowing the straight needle to swerve and criss-cross the many patterned play of our designs. Only specially trained artisans can handle the quick movements needed to create such masterpieces! Spelling errors guaranteed to enhance their charm and one-of-a-kind workmanship. This pillow is embroidered on an ivory linen-cotton blend cover with tied closure. Accented with black velvet piping.
