|Finished cushion with the kit image|
It's simple yet effective, I particularly love the applique images as I got to mess around with decorative stitches on the machine. The instructions for making the cushion front are very good; the only thing missing from the kit is instructions for making the cushion up and some more stranded cotton for the embroidery (I ran out very quickly)!
I really enjoyed this project and hope to see Sally's other designs at the show this year.
The only thing left to decide on is where to put it...
|The seams are hidden between the interfacing and decorative fabric which is folded and pleated to add texture|
|Lighthouse with machine zig zag stitch|
|Seagull with free form feather stitch|
|Sail boat with blanket stitch, by hand|
|I managed to finish my crochet daisy headband whilst on holiday! Here it is...|
|I used a cream top stitch thread to finish off the inner seam of the outer border|
