After I have done my domestic duties, (and relaxed with a cuppa) it was off to the sewing room to make my partners cushion for the cushion swap as (finally) the fabric I had ordered had arrived.
My partners request was in purple and red, and I was really out of my comfort zone working with these two colours as I tend to be more of a blues or soft shabby chic girl.
I wanted to make something quite different so decided on a 3d rose effect. The fabric is by Jinny Bayer and I think it suits what I have made.
Here is a close up of the scrolled roses, I used a different button for each centre to make it interesting.
Here you can see the 3d effect and the pretty design of the fabric.
The roses look quite orange in the photo, but they are more of a red in natural light.
Maria has also completed her cushion swap, her partner requested a bedroom cushion in pink and white, and it was posted last week so should have reached its destination by now. Isn't it gorgeous.
I love the way Maria has fussy cut the roses, and the fabric is so pretty and feminine
We have 16 ladies participating in this swap, I cant wait to see all of the beautiful creations that we are making for each other.
