Norwich, United ...
I was inspired by a couple of cusions i saw in a little boutique in town which had appliqued teapots and cakes. It was extremely overpriced and as always i thought to myself i could easily make that! So i trotted along to a lovely craft shop in taverham and bought some black gingham and a mixture of lovely quilting squares. I decided to go for the doll fabric as i loved it so much and it stood out from the black gingham i had chosen.
After a few attempts at drawing a teapot, cup and saucer( my drawing skills are naff!) i cut the pieces and literally free machined them onto the cushion front. Although a lot of people may think free machining is a bit untidy and unfinished i happen to be a great fan of it, i love to experiment with shapes and lines within stitch.
Anyway, im quite proud of my little creation, and it saved me a few pennies to say the least!
