A birthday present
One of my daughters wanted to make a Welsh flag pillow for my LSWH (long suffering Welsh husband) but we decided that initials were easier than a dragon. Made from Oakshott shot cottons for a luxurious feel.
I backed the shot cottons with a new product Julia at Gone to Earth has just got in. It's a fusible wadding. Fusible on both sides, you press the fabric onto it and, once washed, the glue washes away and you are left with my favourite wadding Hobbs Heirloom 80/20. Much easier for a 10 year old to use than fiddling with basting pins. I bought a cot sized pack and will be using it for any upcoming pillows but would also imagine it would be wonderful for a cot quilt as, one pressing and it's fused on both sides.
