Modern Take on a Simple Cushion

Modern simple shapes and colours are used to create this delightful cushion for use in the garden, in the kitchen or anywhere else that needs a little bit of Spring .

Use Texture

Created with simple shapes from modern fabrics and fused into place;   the use of textured linen or Osnaburg also adds to the charm.

This is a really lovely design which you can copy or use as a means of inspiration.

Recycle/Upcycle/Reuse

You could think about using older fabrics, tablecloths, embroidered textiles

Simple Embroidery

Jo has also used simple embroidery stitches to enhance the simple shapes;  running stitch or a stem stitch with stranded embroidery threads or cotton perle  is easy to use.   Jo has also used the pattern printed on the fabric itself -such as the rose  -

You could think about adding Ric-Rac to the design by stitching it straight onto the cushion fabric;  or as in this case the jumbo version has been added into the edging as a detail.

Embellish with buttons

Jo also adds texture and interest from her supply of buttons but keeps within the floral theme.

Child Friendly

This is a great idea for the younger sewers in the family to have a go at being creative.

Jo has a day-job as a journalist but she loves to sew;  she shares her love of sewing with her children and recently has added writing sewing articles to her c.v.

Jo makes reference to a shop in France called Maison Sajou  - don't be put off by all the french words - the pictures are great!
