Lampshade and Cushion
The pdf contains: instructions for both; fabric suggestions; cutting dimensions; simple, precise instructions; tips, guides and watchpoints.
Fabric: we used a crisp silk dupion from James Brindley – also available from Pongees or our own store. Silks work best for these quilted items; they need some crispness to the hand to hold themselves in place. The embroidery thread was by DMC but Anchor or any fine crochet thread also works.
Level: keen amateur and professional.
There’s nothing complicated about either of them, but you do need to know how to sew, how to handle layers of materials and to make neat stitches. Both are small enough to make on the kitchen table, none of the processes is in itself complicated, the instructions are simple – so you can pick up and put down, take your time over it, and enjoy the process…especially the lovely knots and crosses – such rewarding stitches!
