Sewing Tutorial: Flamingo Cushion Pattern

This flamingo cushion will always stand out from the crowd

I’ve had the idea for a flamingo cushion for a while now and when I received some Essential Trends fat quarters in pink by The Craft Cotton Company I knew they would be perfect for making one with.

It was great fun putting this cushion together and I have kept him sat on my craft desk as it makes me smile whenever I look at it – I will have to make some to go in some other rooms!

The tutorial to make your own is available over on The Craft Cotton Company blog

After A Short Break The Ed’s Birds Makes Are Back: First up – A Fabulous Flamingo

I have had a random assortment of legs, beaks, wings and bodies in my craft bag for a while now since my last flurry of bird makes, and have finally found some time to make the final few pieces and put these birds together. The first completed and strutting out happily is a very fabulous and very pink flamingo.  
   

The pattern for this flamingo is from Kerry Lords book, Edwards Menagerie: birds
