Item details

This workshop is inspired by repeat pattern and colour. I made this cushion while listening to a talking book so I didn’t concentrate too hard on the design. Grids and simple shapes (leaf circles, butterflies see gallery at the end of the document) are great to get going but you could use any shape you like.

It’s a good idea to decide on a colour scheme before we start it doesn’t have to be red. Don’t think too hard about it….just enjoy the process of making!
