Argyle It!

Still making cushion covers and loving it!  I wanted to try an argyle-ish design.   And like any cautious designer, I did it first with paper to figure it out.

Then I remembered this cheater cloth from Lecien that I’ve had for a few months and thought I’d give it a try.

I seriously never thought I’d say this, but isn’t argyle cool?

Lots of stitching, but a fun, fun project.

    Oh shoot, now I’m going to have to get some of my argyle design printed to try this out. It looks great, Linda!

    I agree, your stitching is award-worthy. The color of the paper template is gorgeous.

    This looks amazing. Now I need to expand this idea to a blanket. It would be a good boy baby blanket theme using solids. You got my mind thinking this morning!

    I love it! Good job– and I’ve always thought argyle was cool.

    ooooo I love it!
    i used to have to wear argyle socks to school every day as part of my uniform, and I hated them … but, recently, i’ve been on an argyle sock kick … of course, the ones I have bought from banana republic are MUCH cuter than the ugly green wool ones I had to wear to school …
    anyway – LOVe the argyle … very cute.

    wow! I’ve never seen argyle look so COOL! What are you going to do with your paper sample??

    I am a big argyle fan! Where did you get your paper to do the sample? I really like those little houses:)

    That looks to be a very complicated design to make. I love the final outcome, wonderful.

    Way cute! 🙂 now, thanks to you, the argyle is going to become super popular again. Hopefully they’ll be as great as your pillow.
