I’ve blogged about many of my adaptions to their furniture and I’m sure I’ve blogged about the cushion covers, but they are sooo good!
Well made, easy to paint and/or applique onto, I usually buy a few when I visit; to have them ready for personalised gifts.
A friend was going to be celebrating a big birthday so I was keen to start a new project.
This cushion cover is in a very pale pink.
I used fabric pens to draw the shape of blossom petals in a bright pink!
I used the brush of the nib to flick the pink to give the flowers colour without fully colouring it in.
Then used a brown to draw the branch. A bit of yellow/brown for the little leaves and the inside of the branch and that was it!
Once happy I pressed with a warm iron.
Then I found some embroidery silk and just added a few satin stitches to the petals, this gave the cushion cover a lovely texture. Some brown French knots to the centres and that was it. (I don’t really like doing them, so didn’t do too many!)
I actually added the persons name to the cushion with the fabric pens and chain stitch (which is my favourite embroidery stitch) but I forgot to take any pictures. Sorry.
Thanks for reading,
