The second cushion is still a work in progress. I was thinking about imposing some kind of floral rounded-ness onto the rigid check of these two fabrics, which work well together. They are a cotton/polyester/nylon mix, with gold nylon in the warp providing a bit of shimmer where it catches the light.
I drew a few tendrils onto paper, then stitched through the paper and the two layers of fabric, following the lines of my drawing. Then I cut around the outside of my stitching, leaving about a 6mm margin. The paper was removed by wetting it so it was weak and easy to tear (it still took a bit of work). I will post another pic when it's finished.
