Class requirements for Hand Embroidered Cushion

Embroidered Cushion Requirements


In this class we will be using the 'How does your garden grow' pattern to a hand embroidered and embellished wool felt cushion front.

I took a sections of the pattern and adapted it to create 3 different designs. I used Osnaburg and a selection of wool felt which I embellished with Out of India and Oliver Twist threads, beads and buttons to complete my cushion front.

You will learn a selection of hand embroidery stitches, raw edge applique and embellishing techniques. You will produce a stitch sample to help you complete your project at home.
