Different cushions of the same design

This is the first cushion that I did using this design.Mind you,sometimes it takes me weeks to make the design . Choosing the right color of ribbons and threads is another tough decision to make !

The cushion is light green and measures 16" x 16".

I used a multicolor sewing thread from SULKY forthe lattice work in the center of the design.Matching multicolored beads are then added .
The second version is a round 14" in diameter.I change the color of the roses , the lattice design at the center is stitched using pink multicolored embroidery floss from DMC.
The fabric is from cotton damask.I have a tough time doing the double frills since the fabric is thick.Instead of the normal sewing thread, I had to use the thread normally used for sewing denim/jeans!

The third version of this design is a pair of beige square cushions ordered by a customer for her wedding.

I didn't add the beads here,istead tiny french knots of the same thread are stitched.

Have a fun time browsing through my collection of RIBBON EMBROIDERED ITEMS in here and happy stitching!
