The hand embroidery on this vintage linen is so beautiful - I wanted to use it where it would be seen, used and enjoyed...So I made a pair of cushions. The handmade crochet lace is pretty too, so I kept this as part of the design...front and back!
I have used the last piece that I had of the French embroidered linen today too, on this patchwork cushion.
It has an envelope back with tie fastenings, made from a vintage floral cotton fabric (with new feather filled pad inside.)
Looking ahead to a fresher, spring-like home :)
I also made-over another pair of vintage shoe stretchers - I used antique lace and soft pink velvet ribbon.
