The first part of my latest commission is all done – Harry Potter sampler cross stitch pattern sewn into a cushion.
This cushion is going to a new baby boy who’s nursery is a blue & forest themed space. I used a woodgrain fabric to suit the forest theme, and then bound the cushion in a bright, royal blue which had a nice contrast against the brown woodgrain fabric.
The cushion looks amazing in person (if I do say so myself hehe!). The woodgrain fabric looks amazing against the cross stitch, and almost gives it a magical feel.
I absolutely love this woodgrain fabric, and I really wish I had’ve bought more when I saw it!
The overall cushion finished at 21″, as the pattern is about 15″ finished, and I really wanted the woodgrain fabric to be displayed. My client posted a photo of baby Tyler against the cushion on my Facebook page, and he looks so small against it – he will no doubt grow into it shortly though :)
I’m onto the next portion of this commission now, which is going to be a framed Marauder’s Map cross stitch for Tyler also.
Would just like to wish you all a safe, happy, and craft Christmas and New Years also – all the best!
