Since I started doing market stalls people
are always asking
" Do you make Cushions?"
I have always said
Cushions to me have been something
I just did not want to do.
Also finding big enough pieces of blanket with no marks or stains is not always easy.
Earlier this year I made Master O a cushion.....................
and much to
my surprise I enjoyed doing it.
So I ordered a load of books from the library on cushion making.
Studied up and here are some of my first efforts.
I did large Hydrangeas in different shades on recycled
The leaves are all sewing machined on.
The petals are all hand sewn on.
I have hand dyed all the felt myself.
With these cushions I did not do a zip opening.
They are decorative cushions and not designed to be washed.
They would really need to be sponged clean should they get
any marks on them.
I am now working on another range of cushions and these have zip openings.
I found this tutorial to be the absolute best for teaching me how to do a
perfect zip opening.
These cushions are now in my Felt store.
