Although my craft mojo is a little hit and miss at the moment, I managed to find the time to make some new cushions in vintage fabrics for Emporium. I was given two different floral fabrics to play with, one with traditional pinky flowers and green leaves.
Which turned into three cushions. Each using some vintage buttons to do up the back envelope.
I love working with these gorgeous florals, they are perfect for cushions as they show off the print to its best. I added one of my Roses and Gingham labels to the back, and am really pleased with them.
These are the vintage buttons I picked up the other week especially with this project in mind.
With this one I actually didn't have quite enough floral fabric for the front of the cushion, so I added a strip of deep red gingham to one side and decorated it with some lovely cream ric-rac from Patch. I am pleased to have used some of the ric-rac, as I was stuck for ideas for what to use it for.
Anyway, I am pleased that I managed to get an extra cushion out of the fabric, and I hope they go down well at the shop too.

The other fabric I was given to use was this lovely muted creamy floral print, with beige roses on a cream linen background. I think its an old Laura Ashley print and is gorgeous to work with.
I added some vintage cream buttons to the back to close the cushion cover.
Hopefully this craftiness should give my craft mojo a bit of a boost, and I have infact been making some fabric hexagons with the aim of making a quilt, but we shall see how far I get with that!! I still want to give the crochet another go, but have become a little disheartened with it as I can't clearly understand the confusing crochet lingo!!
