Flowers in Milk Bottles

I really enjoyed creating this pretty, very girly cushion. The fabric is a 100% stone linen screen printed with a very simple design I created in illustrator (the computer program) and printed in white ink. The embroidery is a easy stem stitch with flowers made from circles of fabric. The circle is turned over around the edge with a tacking thread and drawn into create the gathered circle. I attached the flower circles with two buttons, the first a gorgeous shell flower I picked up from No Chintz in Willoughby Sydney and a lovely green buttons that I have had for agers. If you would like to create your own design I have a few milkbottle printed cushion pieces available. Happy Sewing my sewing friends it is a prefect day for it, wet and wonderful outside on the Mornington Peninsula today.
