Mille Feuille cushion

May 24, 2011

The other day I was given discontinued samples of materials
from the shop where I bring my items.
The samples were quite small so I cut them in squares with zig-zag scissors,
(Pinking shears)


I cut a heavy cotton material for the cushion, 40x40 cm.
and drew lines where I should stitch along.
A diamond shape or heart would also be nice.
I then pinched the middle of the cut out little squares and stitched each one to the cushion
with a centimeter space between them.
Keep going round and round until you reach the center.
Then make a simple overlap on the back.

It took a few hours, but it was fun to make.

I love this guide, it lets you know of all the flea-markets in France and informs on how many stands there are, on which days, what you can find there and in detail how to get there,
I wish I could go to every one of them...

Lyon page 97, 400 vendors! Yasmin, how come you never showed me this market?
 Lyon is where my daughter and family lives and are moving
soon to Strasbourg page 105, 25 vendors..., next time when I visit, I'm sure to take my guide with me!

Today I am joining in with  White Wednesday
                                                      Metamorphosis Monday
                                                 Wow us Wednesday
                                                          Transformation Thursday
                                              and  Show and Tell Friday
