There’s something fishy about this cushion

Posted on

Not another ugly to lovely completed this weekend; but this is something that has been waiting to be made up for some time.

I’m not happy with the cushion pad. I think it would take a larger one to pad it out more.

Fishy felt cushion

I hand sewed each fish onto a heavy cream cotton and then embroidered the scales and added tiny black beads for fishy eyes.

This fishy cushion is was inspired by my felt bird cushion which I enjoyed making for my daughter at Christmas.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.
