Butterfly Applique Cushion




Spring is here at last – and although I haven’t yet seen my first butterfly of the season I feel there won’t be too much longer to wait.

Meanwhile I’m celebrating their beauty with this applique cushion cover featuring nine lovely butterflies and Dolly Parton’s lyric “love is like a butterfly” This is a great project for using up some of your prettiest scraps, whilst the text is simply back stitched.

I’ve seen a lot of butterfly cushions but I think the text, and extra stitching for the veins on the wings makes this one stand out from the crowd
