Ever since I made my first cushion like this, I've continued playing around with the idea of inverted silhouettes. So here's my latest:



The front side.



Closeups of some of the appliques.






And the reverse side, in softer colors.



Closeup of the reverse side.


The two sides have very similar, but not identical, bird designs.

I'm pretty pleased how it came out. And I can choose which color scheme to display depending on whether I put the cushion on the sofa or bed.

This is a beautiful pillow.  Was there an original image that you used to invert from? I never thought of doing that but it makes for interesting results.

This is a really cool project.  I would never have thought to use the background as the picture.
