My Woodland Bedroom

My guest room has been the latest room in the house to be beautified. I have settled on a woodland theme, a while ago I made a few cross stitch lovelies from Storyland Cross Stitch. My husband and I brought the gorgeous picture on the fireplace on our honeymoon in Switzerland.

Recently I stumbled upon Sew Charming in Lutterworth, although my first love is Crafty Sew & So I must admit I somewhat fell in love with the beautiful range of fabrics in store.

I scooped up this Sherwood collection along with a wonderfully soft Linea Linea fabric, and quickly got to work on my cushions, I basically raided Pinterest for different ideas.  I used the same envelope cushion pattern as I did in my last blog. I decided to go for appliqué over patchwork because I’ve just brought myself a fancy new Brother sewing machine which has lots of lovely top stitching. For two of my cushions I used wonderful free downloads from Love Patchwork and Sewing, Issue Seventeen has a perfect fox appliqué, it’s all to size being printed out on A4 paper.

I stuffed his little tummy with wadding before sewing it up

The next one is a fantastic stag’s head pattern also from Love Patchwork and Quilting this time from issue thirteen

I also took triangle templates for my next cushion from issue thirteen.

My final cushion I used up some hexes that I’ve got laying around for a blanket which I’m not sure will ever get finished.

Here they are all together with a cushion I cross stitched along with the frames. 20151210_113028

I think after Christmas I might hang up the wreath amongst the cross sticth the colours match perfectly.

Also if you love the woodland theme check out Waterstones book of the year, The Fox and the Star. It is uniquely beautiful both in words and illustrations.
