One of the three sections of Improvising Tradition focuses on teaching Slice and Insert, a fun improvisational technique with many possible variations. This Slash Pillow is a very simple project and a great way to try out the technique, especially if it is new to you. I used two colors of Essex linen and a bright accent color for a narrow binding.
I played around with the layout slightly in this variation I made recently for a school fundraiser. I skipped the binding in favor of a quick envelope closure, and I practiced a fun, pointy free motion design.
