I made this cushion cover for the lovely Petskin in my first swap.



Petskin's love of unusual and creepy animals was very inspiring, so I embroidered an adorable slender loris onto a piece of calico  Cheesy At this point I felt the balance was a bit off, so I added in the beautiful Estonian word nn with the double meaning of luck/happiness. Although my embroidered text needs a little work  Undecided


Then finished it off by piping around the edge with skinny piping I made from a silk scarf; and layered black & white vintage fabrics on the back. I also put in a zipper which had awesome b&w zigzag tape, so I left it exposed.


The calico was whiter in person, I was taking photos in the dark  Roll Eyes


I am now hooked on Slender Lorises.... and swapping!! Thanks for looking  Cheesy  Cheesy
