Three Cushions

My daughter Emma had a request for cushions and this is the result. She provided a picture of a vintage design with altered colours which I redrew from scratch and then had fabric printed at Spoonflower. [I'll not be selling this fabric as it's very similar to the original design.]

The other cushion is applique and embroidery. I purchased plain grey and white fabrics but couldn't find any for the other colours quickly so I had to dye fabric. I think I used a small ruler to make the straight lines on the orange fabric. The black lines are the embroidery, couching.

There are some things I don't like about the cushion, for example the fusible web shows a pattern through the white fabric........

My daughter is delighted with the cushions.

  1. Who wouldn't be delighted to have Mum make two identical yet totally different cushions, and stylish too, to that!
