Ombre Home Sweet Home Cushion

Ombre Home Sweet Home Cross StitchMany many moons ago, I completed an ombre home sweet home cross stitch .. Do you remember? If you’re a new reader, probably not as it’s over a year ago now that I completed it (time flies!)

This is what it looked like, and here’s a link to the original post regarding it.

I asked for advice on how best to present this for my friend who was building her own house, and who has recently moved in – yay! Some suggestions were a hoop covered with turquoise ribbon, or framing it in white.

I decided I wanted to present this cross stitch as a cushion – here’s the finished product which I gifted just last week! I bordered the cross stitch with a bright turquoise fabric, and used a grey and turquoise feature floral fabric as the second border and backing. I inserted a lapped zipper into the back for a neat finish for this cushion.

 

 Happy housewarming Anna! I am so proud of all that you have achieved.
