Little Red Cushions.

Posted on | September 4, 2017 | 13 Comments

I think I have been working away on these little stitcheries over quite a few years. They are the ones I tended to pick up and take with me when I needed a portable project. These are the Christmas tree design.

I have completed the set of 12 stitcheries from a pattern by Lynette Anderson called Sweet Christmas Ornaments.

But I decided to do a few of the trees so I could play around with fabric choices. Instead of settling on one fabric as I first thought I would, I am now going to make them with a mixture of fabrics as I do like that look.

The little cushions end up at about 6 inches wide.  I have noticed two things in this photo. I need to go back and finish stitching some branches. And I also may need to put a dab of glue behind the buttons to stop them moving.

Each pattern came with a wooden button and I then purchased an extra button set to make more.

I had to go hunting in the button jar for extra s for these cushions. Of course I had a lot of gift shaped buttons but they were mostly too big. Thankfully these two worked out okay.

I have the rest of the stitcheries ready to go, but then was distracted with some quilting.

It is very cold outside today so I am pleased to have a quilt on my lap that needs binding.

Hope your week runs smoothly.

Cheers, Karen
