My beautiful little niece who has just turned 18 months old, is being christened this weekend and I wanted to make her a personalised cushion to remember the day.
The cushion is based on one made by Dont Look Now called Flower Garden Pillow. I decided to do a rectangle shape rather than the normal square pillow.
The flowers, stems and butterfly are all appliqued using blanket stitch while Sophia's name is embroidered.
|PLAYING WITH THE LAYOUT|
I went to a class last week at wonderful Kate's and we learnt how to put a zipper in. Perfect for my cushion and of course as soon as I learn something, I want to do it again and again.
|TOP ALL QUILTED|
I chose a simple Stipple design for the quilting and a perfectly pink piping to finish off the border.
What do you think? Hope she likes it xoxoxo
