Handmade applique decorative cushion cover “Springer Spaniel Dog” – my latest one

I don’t know… Just keep making dog’s cushions now… It doesn’t mean that I am unfaithful to Cats… But I love Dogs as well! 🙂

Reviewing my work – The Final

I sorted out all my needlework so far by dividing all the cushions into groups, and here is the last one:

 

Little Ready-to-go Animal Faces Cushions

hedgy3I made these small cushions with the idea of them being lovely little presents for kids especially but adults can enjoy them too 🙂

The are on SALE at the moment in my Etsy shop here

Keep sorting out my Cushions – small groups now :)

 

I made various cushions on several occasions which I would divide like that:

FLOWER CUSHIONS

I played with purple colours on this one

Loved the pale blue colour and I thought the white daisies would look good on it

This is my personal favorite of the three.

There are only three of them in this category as I realized later I prefer animals 🙂

This time it started with me making a couple of these cushions for my friend and then making them for sale…

Second group of my cushions – reviewing my work

After the first – and biggest – group of my handmade cushions  which  I broadly divided my works into, here is the second group to review:

Humorous Cushions

“Two funny cats”

td4

“Sleeping dogs”

fc3

“Four jolly cats”

cats tree5

“Cats tree”

balloon cat2

“Floating kitty”

autumn cat2

“Just cat”

 

I made these cushions for fun 🙂

 

All the cushions are handmade using the raw edge appliqued technique and all details are stitched by hand. I also use a bit of embroidery, beads and sometimes even sequins (but not often :))

 

Well, what do you think of them?

As usual, they are all here to look at, together with my other art

Reviewing my work – vote for the best one!

I decided to take stock of the cushion covers I have made for the last several months. It is sometimes good to look back and see what was a success and what was not in one’s work, I think it helps to judge your own creativity more clearly.

So, I roughly divided all my cushions into several groups.

Group one – Animals:

WHICH CUSHION IS THE BEST IN THIS GROUP, IN YOUR OPINION?

As usual, if you’d like to see them all (and to buy ) you can go here

PS: My second “group” will follow!

Just finished this cushion cover: “Cat and Dog: Friendship”

I made this cushion cover because I can’t stand the phrase “like cat and dog” meaning “enemies”

A cat and a dog can be perfect friends!

cd2

“Cat and Dog: Friendship”
size: a square 48cm / 18″

 

 

All the details are hand-sewn and I did some bead embroidery too. The design is original and I made it with love and care 🙂

I am being watched!

This is how I often work:

Teba 1

 

I am making my cushion under close supervision of my cat Tabitha who  is bidding her time when I turn away so that she can lay down on my unfinished cover 🙂

We adopted her three years ago from the Cat Protection charity, she had been rescued from the streets. She is very shy and easily frightened (real scaredy cat!) but so loving and caring! After my previous cat tragically died at the vets I thought I would never be able to take another one but Tabitha brought me the warmth of heart I’d been missing so much…

 

I love her! I love cats!
