Suzani Inspired Cushion

I love Suzanis, and would dearly love to own one….or several….but until I do, I’m faking it again!

  
I recently bought Justina Blakeney’s awesome book The New Bohemians, and I haven’t been more inspired by one book since I found Selina Lake’s book Homespun Style

  
And if you haven’t seen it before, check out her blog The Jungalow.

In the book, she has a few little DIY projects at the end of each chapter, including this suzani inspired pillow:

  
I thought it was adorable, and set about creating something similar:

  
I found this old blue cushion cover, which had a couple of marks on it, and some felt.

Then I drew some suzani shapes on a piece of paper.

I didn’t have a plan for this, I pretty much just winged it as I went. 

   
 
Then I cut out my shapes and hand-sewed them to my cushion cover.

My design isn’t very well centred, and a bit haphazard- that’s what happens when you don’t plan….

  
But I still think it looks pretty…..
