Ermintrude’s Cushion Pattern



The flowers I used for this pattern were cut out using Sizzix dies, ┬ábut I’ve put the templates in for all of the shapes, which are very easy to cut, bond and stitch. I’ve enjoyed playing with different textures of fabrics, from Liberty Tana Lawn, to ordinary 100% American craft weight cotton to odd scraps of irresistible tweed from the stash, plus a bit of flannel. I called it “Ermintrude’s Cushion” because the naive simplified flower shapes reminded me of The Magic Roundabout, and in particular, Ermintrude the cow with a big fat flower hanging from her mouth…You won’t see the cushion at the shows any more, because my daughter loved it so much I gave it to her for her birthday…
