Poppy Cushion

2nd November 2013

Unit 4 has been posted off for assessment so should have Unit 5 by the end of the week!

I always have that 'waiting for exam results' feeling when I post off my work!!

I made a poppy cushion yesterday....

...made a template for the petals and 'cut' them out from 3 layers of organza using my soldering iron...


...pinned in place on ribbed cotton..


...used black organza to make the centre...


..machined in place and made up the cushion.


 The flowers are only attached in the centre and the petals look quite delicate, just the effect I wanted.

Another task I can cross off my list!
