Nothing Says Spring Like These 20 Items From H&M — All Under $25!

Ask Casa: Find These Kill Bill Pillows?

Hi Casa,
I've looked everywhere online for embroidered pillows like these from Kill Bill Vol. 2. Any ideas other than a Spring break trip to Mexico?

Thanks!

Hi Oliveye,

Those pillows look like crewel pillows. Crewel is a type of free embroidery that uses thick thread, usually wool, to embroider imagery on a fabric surface. Crewel work began in England, and spread to Kashmir and India shortly thereafter. The pillows from Kill Bill Vol. 2 look like they're embroidered pillowcases, and I had virtually no luck finding any pillowcases as gorgeous as those pictured. So, I thought I'd show you the next best alternative: throw pillows that can be used on your bed, alongside more traditional pillows.

The Mantadia Pillow ($128) has similar colors and florals as your pillows, but includes some avian life as well. It's a bit expensive, but definitely lovely.


A more economical alternative is the Crate and Barrel Natasha Pillow ($36.95). It uses rayon thread instead of wool, and is embroidered on a sturdy cotton pillow.

Another alternative is to try your hand at embroidering something similar. You can use embroidery markers and thread to trace a similar design, and then get to work re-creating the design to your specifications. Or, you could try an embroidery kit, such as Sublime Stitching Flower Power Kit.

I also rounded up some other embroidered pillows, to see if any struck your fancy. Good luck in your search!

Cheers,
Casa

Learn embroidery and make it yourself, or look around for somebody who can do it. It's really not to difficult and can be a really fun hobby.
