A beautiful cushion cover
featuring a single rose central motif, with a pretty lace-effect border.
The design has been worked in white, with 3 different shades of blue
added to give the
effect of a lace mat sitting on a darker background. The rose is adapted from a
design in an old needlework magazine, about 90 years old. One of the old
magazines also had a lace-effect edging in one of their charts, which I used as
inspiration for creating this slightly more ornate border, adding in the shading to create
this layered effect.
The plates in the image are 19th Century items from my own
collection. You may notice that some of them are not in the best condition, but
I love these old designs.
cushion measures approximately 11.1 inches (28cm) square but you could make it
larger by adding a wider border. The cushion would also look pretty with a cord
or tasseled trim.
particular design is worked on a 10 Count fabric canvas, in tent stitch.
This stitch is explained in the downloaded materials.
also have a different version of this Single Rose design Single
Rose Panel which uses the same central design (worked in cross
stitch) but has been scaled to fit the Clippy Cover Girl bag.
