One of our timeless cushions, with a simple hand stitched frill.
Some embroidery, dressmaking and machining experience is needed, or it can be completely hand sewn. It’s small enough to make on the kitchen table so you can pick it up and put it down, take your time over it, to really enjoy the process and the therapeutic rhythm of hand stitching little crosses…..
The pdf includes: fabric suggestions; cutting dimensions; simple and precise instructions; our tips, guides and watchpoints.
Fabric: silk responds well to both quilting and embroidered finishes but any cotton lawn, muslin, organdie, light weight linen or wool will be equally as effective. We generally source our silk dupions from James Brindley or Pongees with enough stiffness in the hand to hold a good shape, but softer materials are just as effective, the only difference is that the frills drop more. We usually have this silk in stock, so check out the store. We used a DMC embroidery thread, however Anchor or any light crochet thread can work – just find your favourite colour.
