The Autumn Collection: The Loon Pillow

Michigan loon burlap pillow -

We're onto the third new burlap pillow featured in our new Autumn Collection, and I'm proud to share the new Michigan Loon burlap pillow with you today!

This pillow is a bit larger and rectangular, which makes it a perfect addition for a longer couch or as a centerpiece for a bench.  The hand-stenciled image is a loon with her babies, painted in a very dark gray velveteen fabric paint. The pillow backing is off-white canvas, similar to the Acorn and Pumpkin pillows.

I realize that loons are not necessarily an icon of the fall season, but rather they pepper our lakes throughout many of the seasons here in Michigan. When I travel "up north", as we like to say it in the mitten state (clearly open for interpretation), I go to a cottage with my family on a lake that is inhabited by at least two loons.  To be honest, I didn't know much about a loon or really what they were until I started spending time near the lake and my in-laws taught about their presence and habits on the lake they have become so familiar with over the last twenty plus years.

This pillow is another item handmade with love, meant as a reminder of the beautiful creatures that are around us each day. It's a great decor addition for any loon or lake lovers, or anyone looking to add a natural, organic feel to their space. The burlap is entirely repurposed from coffee bean sacks. Welcome fall in with this quirky yet calming Loon burlap pillow.

You can find it for purchase in our Etsy shop now. I'll be sharing one more pillow this week to complete the new Autumn Collection!
