Crowns for a Queen.

These have turned out so cute, I have to share them early!  Still have another couple to make, but here is a glimpse at a couple of pretty cushions I have made with inspiration from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year.  The main fabric is Irish linen, which I love.  The crowns are pink batik, free machined onto the linen.  Both measure 30x30cm.  I do hope to sell them quickly so I have space to do the other stuff I need to do!

One more for your viewing pleasure!  And an update, all 3 cushions have been sold to kate at Ivy Heart in Shipston on Stour.  From the way she reacted to them I seriously doubt they will be in the shop!  They will have found their way to her house by this evening!  😀
