I had made this cushion last Winter, pre Pinterest, so no instructions. I had left over fabric from curtains,
I made the roses at night while watching TV, have made various things with them.
I machine stitched two rows on either end in soft Duck Egg Blue, using a fancy stitch and added piping made from cream silk.
white Linen which I love.

My first Pinterest inspired project and my first ever blog on my first ever computer.
Just to let you know I was introduced to Pinterest only two weeks ago.
Having been so inspired by all the fabric flower tutorials, thank you clever girls, and as I'm just finishing off my bedroom I thought I would make a cushion for my bed.
I used chiffon fabric and made up my flowers using instructions from Pinterest, sewing them on to white stiffening [ me and glue or should I say glue and I just don't go, get into terrible messes] so sewing was best.
I finished off the roses with a small pearl bead which I sewed in the center.
