Oriental Cushion Covers

Over a year ago a friend of mine said she really wanted some special large multi-textured cushion covers.  I had recently attended a ‘making cushions’ day course and I thought ‘that sounds like fun’, so I brightly said ‘I can make those if you like’!.  Well we selected a variety of Indian material in red, orange and yellow, from shawls through heavily embroidered sari-material and silk, with red corduroy for the back. 

After some time and a lot of planning on how best to use the material, I created 2 very large patchwork type cushion covers, piped and embellished with ribbons and trims.  Fortunately my friend liked the designs, and these were followed with a further 2 small and 3 medium cushion covers.
