Finished my Cushions!!!!

27th October 2018

My cushions began, in 2016, as calico, folded, clamped using a square/circle then dropped in the Indigo vat...





...these samples went into my stash until I started Homesitting when I decided to Kantha stitch in and around the shapes.

Earlier this week I printed calico to make the back of the cushions and today decided on an envelope fastening using some of my other indigo fabric/threads to make buttons and cord...


....so easy, a little fiddling, but worth it..

...circles of fabric are cut and stitched near the edge with small running stitches....


....drawn in around the button...


....then secured..


....voila!


Stitched the button on and hand stitched the cord for the fastening...


...inserted the cushion pad and am so pleased with the result!


I appliqued some of my other Shibori designs on the square design and then Kantha stitched....


... really pleased with the result.

Yesterday placed my seed head collection in the hallway...


.....and bought new pots and plants for the living room....


....a very satisfying week!
