Description

I have a large stash of fabric, doilys and linens, cushion inserts, laces, etc., and have dreamed for a long time of making things to sell either online or at markets or both.  A change in our family's financial position has given me the kick um, I mean motivation, I need to Just Start.  So I matched some thrifted fabric with doilys and started cutting two days ago.  Naturally Battenburg and Naturally Floral are the first two completed cushions.
The fabric is linen-like but non-crease so I think it's a blend of something.  It is a thrift store find.  The battenburg doily is also thrifted and rather 'rustic' in it's execution which adds to it's charm.  The cushion is a simple envelope closure.  I have shaped the corners slightly to avoid 'ears'.  
The inserts are new Rapee "Bouncing Cushion" pillows 20" x 20".

My dad popped in for a visit just as I was starting these and has, sight unseen, pre-ordered my first 6 finished cushions.  A paying customer already!!
