I took an order by email firstname.lastname@example.org for a lovely customer, she is going to a friends wedding on Friday in Newcastle and wanted to give the happy couple a handmade personalised gift. Talk about cutting it fine!
Anyhoo, I got the trusty old Singer fired-up and with a few ideas from the client, came up with this. The couple are Newcastle football supporters and the mascot is a magpie, notice he is wearing a little top hat. On the reverse of the cushion is a print of the couples dog & hand embroidered ‘congratulations’. I really hope they like the new addition to their home.
The cushion cost £50, it is 40cm sq and has a feather pad from The Feather Company in Edinburgh.
It is a 100% cotton and hand embroidered, machine appliqued round the birds and hearts.
