I started with some lovely fabrics from my (very small) stash, a zip and a plan for an embroidered cushion.
|A little bit of Riley Blake and my favourite and only |
Heather Bailey, Nicey Jane, print.
|Cut patches laid out ready to stitch.|
Once the patchwork was stitched together, I traced on my little personalisation design in some water soluble transfer pen, chose some gorgeous co-ordinating perle cottons and grabbed the embroidery hoop to get it all going.
I had planned on making the backing from the Nicey Jane Cherry Hop Dot fabric but then the post man brought me a little bundle of sale fabrics I'd ordered and this fat quarter stripe from Riley Blake. I loved the contrast with the stripes and the colours were a perfect match. (Plus it means I can stretch that Nicey Jane a little further another time!)
|Isn't her name beautiful?|
