“The cream centre for the cushion below was made using a kit called “Heart Deco” from Sylvia Critcher and was my first attempt at Trapunto work. The pattern was intended as a pin cushion but I thought it would work well as the centre of a Valentine cushion. It was easy to do and the end result looks more complicated than it actually was! This was helped by the detailed instructions and materials provide in the kit. In essence, Trapunto work uses small running stitches to create a narrow channel (layering 2 pieces of fabric together) and then threading a wool thread through the channel to create the padded effect.”
Dawn has used the soft pink colour way of Kitty Grace for the envelope backing of this cushion.
