Agathe & Marianne – Quilted Puffball lampshade and Frilled Cushion

£5.00

 

Lampshade and cushion together.

Tiny coffee coloured French knots and cross stitches bring a white silk duppion to life in a coffee and cream – cappuccino – sort of way.

These would look just as pretty in pale blue or clotted cream or dried wheat or apricot skin, or dusty pick or olive…….

Description

 

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!
