Appliquéd Seagull Cushion

On a recent trip to see my sister, she mentioned on more than one occasion, that her seagull cushion was lonely. Time to make a second.

Make an appliquéd seagull cushion. Perfect for a beach house. Threading My Way

I flipped the appliqué, so the two seagulls can look at each other, or face in opposite directions if they wish.


Details about the cushion and the pattern, are on my seagull cushion post of almost three years ago. Three years - no wonder he's been lonely!


Don't you love his long, skinny legs? The scribbly/sketchy stitching is so effective, yet very easy to do.


Here he is sitting on my outdoor seat. Today he'll be flying over to the other side of the country, where he'll feel much more at home near the beach... and I can come and visit them both.


And now you can see why bunting was so appropriate for the card I showed you earlier in the week.

I'll be adding the seagull cushion to the Pillows & Cushions link party, here at Threading My Way.

  6. That's a saucy, sassy seagull - I love him! I think he was carrying a french fry in his mouth and dropped it JUST before you stitched him up - he has kind of a self-satisified french-fry-eating-grin on his face :D

  8. I'm one very lucky and grateful old chook. Thanks so much again, Pam. I just love these guys sitting on the lounge looking at each other. They look as though they're chatting, or maybe planning some mischief. I've sent a photo of them together.
