I knew this project was going to be a labor of love. Am kinda glad I went for making a 14″ pillow instead of 20″. With a hectic work schedule and other projects on my agenda I only get to add a few chevrons at a time. And I am perfectly happy with that – there’s no rush.
Now that I can start to see the finish line, I’ve decided to pipe the edges of the pillow. The inspiration pillows from Anthropologie and West Elm don’t appear to have piping, but I feel it adds a nice finishing touch. A basic black piping has been selected which will contrast with the base fabric. When I think of Kimono my first impression is of the most formal robes, with a base in black, worn for special occasions. So black seems like the most appropriate option. For now, I just need to keep going!
