Indigo Seagull was inspired by watching the birds at Sunset State Beach on the Central California coast. The hemp/organic cotton applique has a layer of organic cotton batting underneath, giving the applique extra depth. The markings are hand embroidered and copied from a sand dollar found on the beach. The applique is hand cut by the artist, then hand sewn using using a running back stitch. The back ground is a lightweight indigo denim made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. The back of the pillow is the same fabric as the applique, with buttonholes and coconut shell buttons, so that the pillow cover can be removed for laundering.
