The Bee Cushion

Daughter No1 Martha-Anne has designed a ‘Bumble Bee’ pattern for her sister’s 21st birthday and wanted me to make her a cushion with the pattern on. One single metre was printed by Lacuna Press on half panama cotton and delivered to me. 

Coincidentally, the day the fabric arrived I received an email from The Sewing Directory with instructions for making a piped scatter cushion, how fortuitous !

Following the instructions I made some piping which I’ve never done before and made the cushion as instructed. It was easier than I expected.


The piping turned out really well.


I hope they are both pleased with the result. This is a very unique item as nearly all the metre of this one off fabric has been used up.(Bonus, I’ve got permission to use the offcuts for an eye pillow…..)
