Boutis and Trupunto pin cushion
I recently borrowed a fabulous book from my friend Jackie called Boutis and Trapunto by Catherine Coget. It is a very inspiring book. I had to try these techniques! Boutis is a type of quilting where you stuff small areas to create a raised image. Trapunto is were you add a cord in a similar fashion to Boutis. I decided to adapt one of the patterns in this book into a pin cushion pattern. It was lovely to do some hand sewing, I found it really relaxing. I went a bit mad and added a lace trim and bows. I love the fact it is very girly and frilly! Looking forward to trying some more Boutis and Trapunto. Perhaps with more colour next time.
