Picture Perfect Patchwork

I just couldn't resist the retro daisy charm of this cotton from fabric rehab; so bright and cheerful and I knew I had the perfect coordinating partners to go with it! After seeing them altogether I thought they would make a cute little chair pad for my sewing chair; just a shame it's too small! eek!

I decided on a simple square block pattern to set off the bold prints, finished with some white pom pom trim I collected a little while ago from my local haberdshery shop which I hadn't quite found the perfect use for until now.

I'm really enjoying patchwork at the moment, it's getting quite addictive so I'm sure you'll be seeing some more projects of this kind from me :)


  1. I didn't notice the pom pom fringe when I saw this on flickr!! Now I LOVE it even more! It is so fabulous. :)

  2. I love this patchwork seat pad - it's so cheerful!

  3. The pom poms are the perfect touch!

  4. That is the cutest seat cushion ever!! I don't even mind that it's too small- it still looks fine to me! So the pom pom trim.

  5. Very cute and cheerful seat cushion... very lovely
