Hooked and prodded rag rug cushions

I have been contacted by several people following the exhibition at Burton Library.  One lovely lady asked me to make two scatter cushions for birthday presents as a commission.  Here they are:-

These were wonderful fun to make!  Materials used included thick knitting wool, cottons, felts, furnishing fabrics – all sorts.

I backed them with toning purple and red corduroy.  The backings and zips had to be hand-sewn as there was no way a sewing machine could have coped with the thickness of the rugging.  It was all worth it in the end!
