A Cushie Job...

It's not really a cushie job, it's actually a really fiddley one, but worth it in the end.
And, I seem to have done this........ quite a lot during the process.
Apologies if you are squeamish! I've been making a few cushions over the last few days.
I had a custom order for this one....
House Inc. Stella and Eden fabrics...
So, I thought I'd do a few more.
The ruffles are so time consuming (I don't have a ruffle foot on my machine) but so pretty in the end.
I've used Rachel Ashwell's Wildflower, Cabana Stripe and Ribbons & Roses. All are discontinued now and will be very hard to find soon. Good job I have a good stash of them!
More House Inc. fabrics. They are all so soft and femine.
I think one, or two, may not make it to the shop!

  1. Wow- I can't imagine how much work it would take to make those great ruffles! Well done on all your craftiness. :-)

  2. Where do you find the time to do all that you do? I am amazed! These a beautiful ~ and I can only imagine the amount of time you spend on each one. I hope you didn't prick your finger TOO MANY times!

  3. WOW Kathryn, They are BEAUTIFUL!!! What a talent to be able to sew like that :))))) I could do the finger pricking bit but that's about all:)))))

  4. Aahhh Kathryn.... that's called 'suffering for our art'. LOL
    Gorgeous cushions!!

  5. Youch. I feel your pain... I'm the queen of the pricked/cut/sewn-over finger.

    Very pretty cushions and beautiful work - as usual!!

  6. The cushions look gorgeous all my favourite fabrics. Take care Carol

  7. I love those pillows. I used to say that I didn't just sew for my grands with love, but with blood as well. I've had to blot out a drop of blood from lots of my creations.

  8. Hi Kathryn,
    love the new cushion. Oh soo pretty with those fabrics.

  9. Ah, that little pinprick is a familiar sight, the challenge is to not get any blood on the fabric!
    Love this style of cushion, I agree its worth the time.

  10. I have always loved the House Inc fabrics! I think I still have one small remnant somewhere ! I love your cushions ;-)
