Large pillow 55cm square, the small 37cm square -Pillow Pair – 50 Euros (for both)

The felted/ embroidered objects below are a Dutch delicacy called ‘hagelslag’. To anyone who isn’t Dutch, this is a popular ‘breakfast’ consisting of sprinkles (or jimmies) glued onto bread with butter. It’s a very popular, very recognizable (dare I say iconic) Dutch treat.
I’ve painted the background to look like plates and a tablecloth. The toast is felt, and the hagelslag I stitched on.
I have quite a lot of these hagelslag canvases I’ve been making for bakeries in Amsterdam.
All of the backs are finished with vintage wallpaper and a sawtooth hanger.
