Crazy for crosses

Learning to sew piped cushions was on my list of things to master this summer. They're so simple, why have I avoided them for so long? A friend asked me to sew six small accent pillows in some pretty luxury fabric (£55/meter!!!) with silk trim in July. I think I'm an old hand at them now and show no signs of stopping.

My love for cross-patterned things came out on this pillow which is destined for someone else's home. I printed the fabric the old fashioned way, using a potato stamp. The last time i used a potato stamp was probably kindergarden, twenty-odd years ago but I find it's one of the easiest ways to print on fabric because of the natural sponginess of the spud.

Here you are, a potato-stamped cross pillow with an envelope back and turquoise piping.
