I hand carve the design using linoleum, and then hand print onto fabric. I recently taught myself how to sew, so making these pillows has been a very exciting adventure! All mermaids are slightly different than one another. Because I'm hand printing each one and hand sewing them, each one has lots of character. The colors also may vary slightly on your computer. I use fabric oil base inks by speedball. You can spot treat these with a little soap and water. Please message me if you have any questions. I can also take custom orders.
