Spring Inspired Cushion Cover

Thursday, March 1, 2012

I organized a cushion cover swap over on Craftster and this is what I made for my wonderful partner, Judy (aka pjherbert). Judy and I have co-organized many swaps together (including the cushion cover swap) and I was really excited to finally get to craft with her. 

She had listed 'floral' as one of the themes she likes and given that we're heading into spring, I thought a simple flower inspired design would be nice. 

I used linen and quilting cottons for the foundation. The flowers are made of felt and were stitched on with embroidery floss then finished off with a variety of white buttons. The stems were embroidered as well. 

The quote is by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I stamped it on a piece of linen using permanent ink then sewed it to the foundation with a zig-zag stitch. 

I can't wait to see the amazing cover that Judy is making for me. Check out the gallery to admire some of the great covers others have made!

Fantastic job. It's great to get crafty, but even better to do it with a friend. Seattle Beauty and Fashion - Girlie Blog Seattle

This and your journal cover are such great projects! I love the color palette you used. Oh, and I forgot to say it's great that another blogger is working on the 1-2-3 Sew challenge too!!! It would be cool if we could all link up posts somehow- what do you think?
