A Competition Cushion

I was contacted by Terrys Fabrics a few weeks ago asking if I wanted to take part in a competition. I was allowed to choose 2 fabrics, was sent 0.5m of each and a 18 inch cushion, in return I was to make a cushion cover, photograph it, blog about it then an interior designer will pick a winner. If I win I get vouchers to spend on fabric. It was a no brainer since the site has a fab range of fabric and my kitchen windows are still nude!

I chose 2 Clarke & Clarke fabrics, a burgundy polka dot and a sage floral. I am slightly in love with Clarke & Clarke fabrics although I can find nothing on line about their ethics (when buying fabric for clothing I only buy fairtrade fabric but I have struggled to get heavy weight home decor fabric that is ethical).

This is my cushion,

I used the polka dot to make a simple cover then made a fabric flower with the sage floral and a polka dot rosette in the centre.

I am not sure where she is going to live, possibly the kitchen if I ever get my much wanted church pew..!


  1. This is lovely! The colour is gorgeous, and the flower is a cute touch. Good luck!

  2. Really gorgeous Alison, love the colour and the flower really finishes it off! Good luck hun!
