That's the beauty of being able to just make what I feel like, rather than panicking about what is going to sell. I get to experiment with colours and combinations and every single thing is a "limited edition".
(Remember this year I'm taking more of a relaaaaaaxed approach to sewing, and not freaking out about stock levels and upcoming markets and product ranges and seasonal colours. No, this year is all about just making what I feel like, and if it sells then great, and if it doesn't - well then, I have my upcoming Christmas presents to friends and family all taken care of.)
And then here is another one, this time with printed babushkas on canvas, which I matched with the country-cottage inspired striped material.
The two different fabrics were sitting on my sewing table (ahem, that's the dining table actually) and as I turned around I saw them both out of the corner of my eye, and saw how well they went together.
On the reverse side I've used a supersoft pinwale corduroy in grass green. This cushion is so tactile I just want to sit there stroking it! But as much as I love this one it doesn't go in our house, so I think it's going to have to go on Etsy instead.......
(oh, and an update: my tres chic Parisian cushion got a great deal of interest at the market from a lovely gent who is moving into his new place on Tuesday and wants another one to go with it! Hooray! I knew I was onto a winner with that one. .....)
