Sashiko pillow with "Mottainai" stuffing



I finished this little ditty in various waiting rooms over the summer... 


And when I got back to Tokyo, decided spur of the moment to turn it into a pillow right away... and after a summer of spending too much moolah in the states... the concept of "mottainai" came to mind... 

Mottainai means "waste nothing"... so I felt really virtuous, filling this little pillow with scraps of batting and fabric.


Getting there... wow, it takes a LOT of scraps...






It's very heavy (I like that) and a little lumpy... and just fine.:).

Linking up with Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday.  It's been awhile... lots to see over there!
