French inspired Cushion

I'm still playing around with fabric ... cutting out hearts and pillows and discovering the fun of printing on fabric ...
I have a few things to share in the next few days ... today is a little French inspired cushion ... using mostly graphics from the Graphics Fairy and some cotton sheeting that I had in my box of materials 


I thought I'd practice on this cotton ... but it worked so well I used it ... 
My printer as most printers do ... only takes up to A4 size so I printed four sheets of fabric ... lightly attaching it with spray first to card stock ... then sewing it was easy...
A band of lace hides the join


I've just bought some expensive pre printed fabric ... and could have saved myself some money had I realised that this was going to work so well ...
I've also been reading my new book by Julie Nutting as recommended by Sweet Mona Pendleton ... so I hope to be able to try these techniques soon ... How I love learning new things ... 
Right now some DT projects are calling so I have to get on ... I hope you'll stop by for the new CCCB challenge tomorrow and don't forget that you still have time to enter the challenge over at Pixie Dust Paperie 

Have a beautiful Day

Ros, you are a priceless source of inspiration!! This pillow is stunningly beautiful! The idea of feeding fabric through my Canon printer would have never appeared in my mind... fabulous!

What a fun pillow, Ros. I used to print my artwork on Muslin, but quit that years ago when I started making cards. You sound like you are having so much fun exploring this side of crafts! Hope you are having a great day!
