My stripy project was this cushion. I rather fancied this colour scheme for a little area where the chair normally sits. I rippled in stripes until the piece was big enough to go around the cushion pad in one piece, then joined the seams and top to bottom edges.
Truly inspiring inspiration for these beauties/works of art can be found here. After being nosey and searching the Web for them, I understand that they can become a little bit of an obsession once you embark on making them. But there certainly lots and lots of glorious examples to live up to.
I can hear my ground almonds calling me from the kitchen cupboard!
