Today I finished making a second little cushion. It’s got lots of hand-embroidered stitches, beads, buttons and wooly bits. It’s approximately 12″ x 12″ and has a feather-filled cushion filler inside and is deliciously plump and squashy.
It’s made from pink wool-rich Tweedy fabric with a funky floral design cotton material over the top.
Finally, a mid-weight linen panel with an appliqué cottage and tree to decorate in the middle.
I’ve been practising:
- Twisted Daisy Border Stitch
- Sheaf Stitch
- Tete De La Boeuf
- Russian Chain Stitch
- Rosette of Thorns
