Believe in Yourself – Tattoo Design

This pattern featured in CrossStitcher Magazine Issue 319 Summer 2017.

I saw this design and had to make a start on it straight away as I fell in love with it. The colours and the patterns are so vibrant it was a real pleasure seeing it come to life.

As I was making it I was wondering how best to display the finished design. I decided on getting some black felt and making it into a ‘cuddle cushion’ well that’s what I call it anyway. You know the small rectangular throw cushions you have on your bed that serve little purpose other than looking good?!

I laid the design on top of the felt and sewed around it so the back of the stitches would be protected when inserting the cushion. I sealed the edges to make a ‘bag’ and sewed a zip into one end to allow for washing. Then I got an old pillow,  washed and dried it then cut it down to size, sewed the end and hey presto. I made something new from something old!

I was really happy with how it came out and love being able to see it everyday. But most of all I love the messages it conveys. Some of the most important things to remember Love, Luck, Hope, Trust and belief in yourself!
