I am a fan of Sally Hawkins and when a film popped up on Netflix with her in, I started to watch.
The film was called ‘Maudie‘ and it told the sad tale of the life of Maud Lewis.
She didn’t have the greatest time on earth but whilst she was here she painted…she really painted….she painted on walls, cupboards, stairs, windows etc., all in a charming folk art style.
So after buying a couple of plain cushion covers from IKEA recently I decided to make a copy of one of her designs.
If I ever get my own craft room or She Shed this cushion will be installed there. (Got to keep dreaming!)
So here’s what I did to the first cushion… (I used tubes of fabric paint, easy to use and you just press to seal it and make it permanent)
The designs are deceptively simple, it was interesting to try and copy this, my red flower on the left isn’t really in the right place but I’m keeping these cushions for myself, so apart from you few readers -no one will know!
Here it is all painted, I’ll let you know soon what I did to it then…
Thanks for reading, I’ll be back next week,
