What with it being summer and ice cream weather, I was wondering what to do with the scraps of ice cream patterned fabric that I had leftover from a previous cushion. I started to cut out the individual ice creams and then tried spreading them out across different fabrics. It didn’t quite work, so I cut some fabric out to back them and started trying to group them together.
I put two together against a heart shape and sewed them on it. Next, I stitched it onto my cushion fabric. It didn’t quite look enough, so I added a yellow bow on one side of the heart.
It still needed something else, so I put a trail of coloured buttons leading from the bottom of the heart, which gave it the appearance of a balloon floating away.
After finishing all the seams, ironing and putting in the cushion pad, it was complete. Time for a couple of snaps outside in the sun and inside the relative cool of my living room.
