  Xmas 2005: Janito the CEO

Turtle Cushion
Originally uploaded by Sponky's Modern Life.
This Sashiko was made for my brother's lovely girlfriend. She is a mad keen turtle fan, so I took the Kikko (Tortiseshell) design and adapted it for my own use. This enormous cushion had a 67 cm square stitched area. Major problems with this size were:
I marked the design as I stitched, which meant it got a lean on towards the end. Not sure how to fix that, perhaps by completely pre-marking? But then you would lose the chalk marks after a while. Due to the sheer size, stitching the middle was an enormous pain. I also need to make a cushion insert out of muslin so Janito could stuff it - I don't think you can get a standard cushion this size.
