Did not realize that I haven't posted anything for quite some time.
Today I bring you some lovely self painted and sewn cushions
Lets begin form the begining
I started with golden orange satin fabric
Self printed off-white cotton
Pale green fabric border
Muted gold and green lace
and Acrylic fabric paints
I had long time back seen some lovely banana tree patterns in Good Earth decor store. Keeping them in mind I sketched two banana trees on the off-white fabric. The banana tree with flowers and fruits is the female tree, and the one with only flower is the male banana tree. Had to make both because both female and male together balance the nature.
Time to colour
In the morning when the house is empty after the kids and hubby go off to their school and office respectively, I find little time for me in the soft golden glow of morning sun
The above pic shows the tree filled with colour..
The pic bellow shows detailing and highlighting of the trees
Next step was just sewing. Refer to my earlier post on cushions for how I sew them..
The female banana tree
The male banana tree
Now they look lovely in my living room adding the glow of golden yellow and also the nature's soothing green
I believe you will love them too...
