When I am not working on Flutterby Weddings I still like to be creative in my free time.
I recently inherited a Lloyd Loom style chair which needed renovating, I painted it in Deeply Plum Statement Emulsion paint from Wilkinsons I then coated it in satin varnish to protect the paint and left it to dry while worked on the cushion.
I really wanted the cushion to have a vintage feel but I also wanted to use modern fabrics so I designed a crazy patch work pattern. I collected together lots of fat quarters in purple, dark blue, coral, burnt orange, red, grey, black and green. I choose motifs which featured animals, birds, flora and spots and stripes to create an eclectic feel. It took a long time to complete it as I patchworked it by hand but I am really pleased with the finished chair, it now sits proudly in our conservatory.
