I'm very happy working on my cushion making at the moment...
My latest one-of-a-kind creation was this large pillow-sized cushion made from a hand worked vintage tapestry.
|I combined it with a cheerful 1970's rose print fabric around the edges.|
|And made the reverse, fastened with large tied bows, from another vintage floral.|
|It is filled with a pure goose feather and down full sized bed pillow - A great size for snuggling into on the sofa or as a seat pad on a window nook.|
|At the weekend I was out foraging for more fabrics to use in my work and came home with this pretty pile...|
Lots printed with red roses of course!
|And after making this pair of cottage cushions a few weeks ago, where I salvaged the beautiful hand embroidered cottage panels from a damaged tablecloth....|
|I was left with the central piece from the tablecloth embroidered with a perfect circle of cottage garden flowers, which I felt compelled to re-use too.|
The last remaining sections of the hand embroidery from the tablecloth were used in adding a decorative touch to the velvet bags I showed on my blog recently...
The oddments of plain linen left over after all of these projects where turned into great rag dusters!
