A new range and a giveaway

For a long time now, when I have been making one of the many nautical buntings, I’ve thought it would be a good idea to make some cushion covers to go with these.  So, finally I got around to having a bit of a play.  I decided to see if I could get the “A” cushion correct, as this would be the most complicated, with having to make a square cushion out of a non square flag.  I figured it out with a bit of experimenting, and the end result was very pleasing.  If you click on the picture it should take you through to my Etsy shop.

nauticalcushion3Why stop there though?  I have a whole range of buntings, many for children’s rooms, where a co-ordination cushion may well look rather sweet, so I made some more, still patchwork, and all with an envelope closure at the back, so there was no zips to catch on.  (cushions are invariably thrown around by young children, or is that just my children?)

So we have a cushion for the jungle bunting

And a new cushion to go with a new bunting, using the wonderful Westfalenstoffe cotton fabrics.
