Anniversary Cushion

My husband loves dandelions and so I decided to make and embroider a cushion for him, for our 4th wedding anniversary.

The cushion itself is made from half a metre of Barkcloth fabric from Moda. Barkcloth is a soft, thick, slightly textured fabric, so named because it has a surface like that of tree bark – but it doesn’t feel rough like a tree!  It’s heavier weight means it is ideal for home furnishings or bags.

My husband also likes the sashiko work I’ve done in the past, so the embroidery was meant to resemble that style.
