It’s a gift! A bespoke cushion made from old linen, with applique …. shabby chic perfect ….
This is a commissioned piece I worked recently – a gift for a new house. The recipient had just moved into an ancient cottage, and adores “shabby chic”, so this sofa pillow seemed like the perfect gift.
The body of the pillow came from an antique linen tablecloth that was beyond use, and had belonged to the client’s grandmother. The strip of blue fabric came from an old blue antimaccassar, and I appliqued the pretty blue floral (which came from a pretty little girl’s dress) with the linen heart-shaped overlay, stitched and fringed.
I adore it, and I hope the recipient did, too.
