Friday Arts & Crafts: The Queen & The King

I don't play chess very often, and when I do I lose most of the times. The problem with me playing chess is I get distracted by the pretty shapes of the chess pieces. Instead of thinking three steps ahead, I admire the King and the Queen. The checkered board in front of me makes me imagine new textile patterns.

These pillow are the result of yet another chess game. This time around I decided to make them part of my pillow collection. I created stencils out of thick plastic, giving the Queen slightly curvier shape in contrast to the King. They turned out to be perfect spring & summer pillows as they are a combination of cotton and linen.
