Green Mum Printed On Soft Cotton Linen Blend Fabric And Made Into Throw Pillows

Garden Photography Flower Throw Pillows

My home is a reflection of my garden. Inside, flowers bloom surrounded by natural wood and slate, and a color palette inspired by nature. Flowers grown in my garden can be enjoyed for only a short time but have found a unique way to bring them inside to brighten up my home the rest of the year: using garden photography to create indoor gardens. Green mum printed on soft cotton linen blend fabric and made into throw pillows!This printed pillow is made from flower photography - see how it's done!

These fabric flower throw pillows are made from my garden photography.

Periwinkle printed on soft cotton linen blend fabric and made into throw pillows!

The intention of the print is to capture the fleeting beauty of each flower magnified to showcase details which you would normally not see, perfect and imperfect. The colors, shapes and forms take on new interest when seen in a new way.

The Process:

Each flower was grown in my garden. I photographed the most interesting blooms with a macro lens and a light box and used the images to design the fabric digitally.Turn garden flowers into throw pillows so they will last forever!

The bold colors and interesting shapes of the photograph look stunning as they are digitally printed. Asymmetrical placement, uneven petals, pollen spots: these are part of the beauty of nature’s design.

The fabric is a soft but sturdy linen-cotton blend. The pillow cases are art pieces but should definitely be used.

Hand washing will retain the vibrancy of the print, machine washing will soften the print and the linen. Both results are very nice.Set of three gorgeous flower throw pillows made from garden photography

    Hi Katie, I plan to write one, but it is quite a technical process. It may end up as a series of posts or a guide instead of a tutorial. Thanks for your comment!

    Your photo pillows are wonderful! I have done the same thing with my own garden flowers using Spoonflower.com and printing some of the pictures on EQ Printables, which yields great quality pictures from inkjet printers. I’d love to show you my own pillows.
