The object is a pillowcase. Images on the front depict sites in Canton, SD: Augustana College in the upper left, the Courthouse in the upper right, and the Indian Asylum in the bottom half. There is a banner that runs throughout this front design and says "Canton S.D." The imagery was printed onto the fabric and then someone added embroidery accents to the design (outlines of the separate images, banner, and letters; other details on the banner; grass details). The front of the pillowcase is a yellow fabric and the back is a green fabric. The two pieces are stitched together with a white thread.
