I've used Tilda's Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane fabric to create a cushion inspired by my friends, the Flamingo Ladies!
Tilda have two lovely new ranges available this Autumn, Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane. Both are available in limited edition from Stitch Craft Create
Cabbage Rose is full of ginger and teal tones with raspberry highlights and inspired by colourful characters from the 1950’s like Lucille Ball and Astrid Lindgren’s Pippi Longstocking. Whilst still being in the typical Tilda style, this range has a different feel to it.
Memory Lane features deep navy colours with accompanying mustard and light pink highlights in the floral details, these colours give it more on a vintage feel. It has the same patterns as those in Cabbage Rose, but it has a bit more of a sophisticated colour palette and more of a 1920’s feel to it, it takes inspiration from the era’s innovative fashion, jazz the Charleston and Art Deco style. It features playful bunnies playing amongst pink roses and subtle off-white colours which keep the range looking light and fresh.
This cushion is inspired by a group of friends who always buy each other gifts with flamingo motifs. We've had badges, socks, scarves, paperclips and all sorts of stuff, one of us even has a flamingo tattoo, but we've never had a cushion before!
Now that the cushion top borders are complete, fuse your flamingos into place. You may wish to intertwine the heads and necks of a couple of the birds, so play with the arrangement before you fuse into place permanently
