This listing is for a complete cushion.

I have made it using paisley quilting cotton in panels, together with some panels made from vintage embroidered linen. The quilting cotton is new fabric.The embroidery has been machine patched together for a make-do-and-mend look, please see photos.

Front is backed with a layer of lightweight polyester wadding and then a lining. All the joins have then been top stitched with a decorative zig-zag to give a lightly quilted effect.

For the back I have used a mauve woven check in viscose. I have used the front fastenings from a man's striped shirt to make the button opening.

All materials were laundered before I made the cushion and the inside seams have been overlocked for strength and neatness.

Measures about 15 inches square and comes complete with a new polyester filled cushion.


Embroidery on this cushion came from a vintage tablecloth, I sewed the good pieces together to make the four 'shabby-chic' panels. Back fastenings came from a man's shirt. All other materials are new.
