Chrysanthemum cushion


I made this cushion using the tutorial at sewing.org, clicky here.

Not much to say, except a few variations I made:
  • I probably did more than 61 half-circle petals.  I just kept going until it looked right.
  • I made my cushion 16" in diameter, and put a zip in the side panel so I could use a circular removable cushion pad.  To read how I did it, see this earlier post where I did the same thing.
  • I finished the centre off with a covered button because my centre petals looked messy.
  • I didn't hand-stitch petals to the surface because I'm lazy.  I used my machine on a zig-zag stitch to baste them on.
