A bit of patchwork....

Over the Christmas period I had a bit of time for some sewing and one of the products I made was this cute patchwork cushion. The bright colours and lovely prints would be sure to cheer anyone up on these cold dark days!

The fabric I used came from everywhere, from vintage sheets to some more modern pieces! Some of the best bits about patchwork are getting to use so many different fabrics, fitting them together and hand sewing each piece.... I'm sure I have said this before but I find it very relaxing!

The cushion is fully lined and is backed with a beige cotton fabric which provides a nice contrast to the colour on the front!


I have listed the cushion on both etsy and folksy so please do take a look!
