Two New Cushions Added To My Shop

I finished off two new cushions for my shop today.

The first is this flower cushion.  The flowers are appliqued onto a patchwork background and then I have embroidered over the top and added some beads and sequins for decoration.

The second is a different novel idea I thought of.  It is a cushion with a secret compartment inside for storing things like letters or a secret diary which would be great for a teenager.

I used a cotton fabric with horses on for the front panel and added a border in a contrasting brick red cotton.  Then I used a thick upholstery fabric for the outer edge and the back.  The cushion pad fits inside where there is another sipped pouch so that when you have put your secrets inside you can turn the cushion over and it would look like a normal cushion.

  1. I love the colours on the flower cushion, and I didnt realise how complex the pocket cushion is - I thought the horse fabric was the pocket. What a great idea, maybe you could make a matching notebook/diary cover to go with it??
