More Bright Butterflies

Bright Butterfly C from "All A Flutter" by Matching Pegs

Today I finished my last two bright butterflies for my “All A Flutter” cushion that I have been needle-turning in bright fabrics.  You can see the first three here and here.Bright Butterfly B from "All A Flutter" by Matching Pegs

It should not take me long to finish them as a cushion, now that I have an invisible zipper foot for my trusty Husquvarna.  I think a trip to IKEA to pick up more feather and down cushion inserts might be on the cards!

How do you like to finish your cushions, zips, buttons, bows, envelope enclosure?  Do tell.

  1. What lovely handwork! And the brights on the dark reversed text background work really well. I don’t believe I have ever seen anything quite like this before–more inspiration. As to cushion (or pillow) closures, I have become a fan of the invisible zipper. Once I found a couple of good tutorials on some generous ladies’ blogs, I found them quite straightforward to insert. On a lightweight pillow cover I just insert them in the seam. On a heavier-weight cover, such as a quilted one (or one where I bind the edges like a quilt) I make the back in two pieces and put the zipper right across the center. I look forward to seeing your finished cushion!
