knitted cushion with embroidered Iris

Hello friends,
The Iris cushion is now finished, the lady who bought it for her daughter was delighted.
The flowers were embroidered with double knit wool, I have added pearl beads and gold thread which aren't showing up on the picture.
When I showed the lady the drawing of the design that I was going to put on her cushion she asked me if I could do some sort of drawing of it and put it in a frame to go along with the cushion. At first I had the idea to paint an Iris but then I had a brain wave and thought why not use the same design as the cushion, this is what I made for her, she was thrilled.

We have got a little charity project going at the knitting club, we are now knitting things for orphan babies in Bulgaria, this little hat was my contribution.


  1. What a reat idea to frame the knitted embroidery!

  2. You are so hardworking! The knitted 'sketch' is a great way to add to the cushion.
    Lucky Bulgarian baby!

  5. Thank you to all my dear friends for your lovely comments.
