A Bed of Roses Smocked Cushion Top
A Bed of Roses Smocked Cushion Top
Welcome to a new series of smocked cushion tops! I hope that the next smocking ideas in the following seasonal cushion tops will help ignite some ideas of your own! Change the colours to match your home décor, or consider changing the size of the smocked cushion top to suit a sofa or smaller to hang on a door knob. Spring is the first in the series of four seasonal cushions offering not only variations, but three levels of difficulty on a tradition smocking design. The sample design was made using the basic or beginner smocking design which repeats the basic motif. The second design mirror images the basic motif and adds different accents with the possibility of introducing seed bead accents and back smocking. The third design utilizes a technique called ‘colour tumbling’. To do this effectively, choose two colours that are close on the colour wheel like hot pink and orange or lime green and turquoise. Follow the instructions on the graph and use three strands of floss. You, of course, get to choose the colour placement. The stitched designs are the designer choice and meant to guide you.

Charming Tatted Bookmark
Charming Tatted Bookmark and Beaded Fob
Back in 2009, I participated in a bookmark exchange with the online tatting group, In Tatters. I wanted to do something unique for my partner, so I looked through many books and patterns online and found an edging in the book Tatting Patterns by the staff of WorkBasket Magazine which ultimately inspired the design of this bookmark. Many people think tatting is beautiful, but they aren’t so fond of doilies. Bookmarks are an effective way to showcase tatting and create an item for yourself or friends that will be appreciated for its beauty, strength and practicality.

These ornaments are meant to inspire you and the instructions are simply guidelines. Embellish any of the ornaments with ribbons, buttons, beads or trims. Try different materials for hair. Draw faces, use face charms or buttons or leave them faceless. Create arms from fabric beads or string large beads in a row, or not. Sew rat tail cord along the seam to finish the edges or cover the edges with cord. Attach a hanging loop at the top of the head or attach a hanging ring at the back. Combine techniques or try different combinations of stitches. Let your imagination be your guide. Designed by Lucy Garvin [email protected] & Sherry Del Rizzo [email protected]

Tranquility Lace
Tranquility Lace
For many pieces I work from the centre out. For this design I completed the centre Kloster and then counted out to complete the Kloster for the border. Some may be more comfortable starting from the outer border in buttonhole stitch and work towards centre. I would recommend starting from the middle of a side and not the corner of the design as stitches are weakened when started at the corner. See arrows on chart for the starting point used in this sample. Designed by Kim Beamish [email protected] craftycreations-beamish.blogspot.ca
