Heavily stitched and beaded decorative cushion with flower motifs and handmade silk tassels.
I made this cushion a few years ago as part of my City & Guilds course as
one of my experimental pieces. The base fabric has little snippets of thread and silk waste laid on it and I have then arranged yellow and orange fabric flowers, this has all been covered with a chiffon scarf.
The background area is hand stitched in seeding and the flowers have been machined stitched using textured thread to make them stand out. The flowers have also been beaded using frosted glass seed and bugle beads.
Each corner has an orange and blue silk tassel bound at the top with orange thread.
The back of the cushion is yellow/orange/pink mix tie dyed cotton and the cushion is stuffed with polyester toy stuffing.
The size of the cushion (excluding tassels) is 30x30 cm or 12x12 inches. The tassels are 6cm or 2 ¼ inches long.
This is not washable or to have heavy use.
