Le Challenge ‘Flower Power’

I chose ‘Flower Power’ as a reminder of the slogan developed in the 1960s/70s to represent peaceful resistance.

I created a cushion with a blossom made with different colourful materials.

First I stitched a few green leaves . In one leaf I sewed the Initials FP, with a narrow zigzag stitch.

Then I created little rectangles and folded the smaller sides 1cm in and stitched one raw side onto my fabric. After folding it , I stitched  the next one on. Working from the inside to the outside the flower blossomed.

The last circle is hand stitched.

On the back I chose a few white flowers as an additional decoration.imageI thoroughly enjoyed making this ‘Flower Power’ cushioned for the ‘Era’ themed challenge. 🙂
