wallpaper

A friend of mine has recently given her bedroom a makeover. Going through a rough period in her life, she wanted her surroundings to be cheerful and bright. She chose this leafy wallpaper, ‘Lacarno‘ (pictured above) as the main feature.

We wanted to make some cushions to compliment the wallpaper, so I sourced the following material from Wrapped in Fabric. My friend liked the pink paisley and the floral material. I chose to use the pink paisley material to make two 50cmx50cm cushions and the floral material to make one 30cmx40cm cushion.

I really enjoyed this project. I found the fabric beautiful to work with and sewing both relaxing and rewarding. I love that you can start with a piece of material and end with a product that is charming and useful. Here is the final result, cheerful and colourful…
