Remember our Family Textiles? Cushions completed!

We had colourful fun trying to create some new posh cushions for our sofa ... Here is Daisy's Tiger, painted and with pastel detail added ...


And Mary's Meerkat featuring a nice bold green outline. 


And Matty's Fox, also showing great colour mixing and shading too. 


You dont have to encourage me to be colourful, the top i was wearing in the photo this was drawn from is almost that bright pink. 


Then we all tried quilting for the first time, and I began to make the art into actual cushion covers using a fun table cloth I found second hand.


Mary sewing and keeping a nice tension on her running stitch ... She is now 7 years old and very fond of sewing ...


Matty May and Daisy can now all enjoy a new cushion when reading books on the sofa ...


My own cushion receives approval by Salt Ferret herself! so much so she stayed still long enough for a photograph!
