Embroidered Cushions

Hello everyone!

 I found this pretty floral embroidered cushion a few weeks ago at a car boot fair.  A good wash, iron and a new feather pad have brought it back to life.  Sometimes that's all vintage finds need - a bit of TLC to bring them up to date.  The divine round velvet and linen cushion was a birthday gift from my dear friend Lucy.  The colour, the pleating, the embroidery - it's so gorgeous.  This mix of mismatched patterns, shapes and textures work so beautifully together.  It takes time, piecing and layering together items to make a pleasing composition - it's like pinning things on a moodboard.
