For my final project, I have decided to make a large floor pillow (pouf) in the shape of a tomato pin cushion. I will be calling upon fairy and cottagecore aesthetics for this project.
A “real world” reference I am using is the movie “Secret World of Arrietty” a ghilbli movie inspired by “The Borrowers” book. Below is an image of Arrietty’s room, that features a pin cushion chair.
For alternatives of this project, I decided to use Pop Art and Goblincore for my alternative aesthetics. For pop art, I decided to play with the concept of size brought to a comical sense by designing a large plush dice, for goblincore, I decided to do more of a floor pillow/carpet combination concept with moss and a large plush rock.
Progress on project:
To report my progress on my project, I got the supplies needed the other day, including red and green fabric and red and green thread. I already have the patterns printed out, now what I need to do is cut everything out and sew it together. I will be double layering the fabric for strength and thickness.
