Lesley Luscious Mini Cushions and Hearts

Lushious Mini Cushions and Hearts

 

The cushions and hearts are made from a constructed piece of fabric, decorated with stitch, threads, ribbon ,beads  etc

I suggest you choose a colour scheme – then collect up fabric pieces, threads and decorations.

 

 

Please bring to the class:-
