Tapestry Cushion 

I found this tapestry kit in my local op shop for $3.99, and figured I’d give it a go!

Surprisingly quickly I had it completed.

Next was making it into a cushion. I wasn’t sure exactly how to do this given the stiff backing it was made from, but Google is always my friend. The key tip I gleaned was to tack the fabric to the backing before running it through the sewing machine. It worked like a treat.

I used a piece of cream wool felting my mum gave me at Christmas to make a back for this cushion. I simply hemmed two pieces to recreate the “envelope” method I usually use for cushions, then sewed it to the tapestry. Trimmed the edges, turned it back inside out and stuck a cushion insert into it.

OMG I love it!

I’m really proud of this, it’s my first tapestry, and it worked really well! I will keep an eye out for kits in the future (I’ve since discovered they are really fricking expensive to buy new).
