Oo La La!
Je aussi speek ze terrible Francais - ind je n'est ce pas wreet eet tres will eether.
I can sew... et j'adore le Francais Bulldog. Sadly I haven't got one - instead I'm stuck with Buster, the daftest English Bulldog in the world.
I created this cushion from looking at the wonderful fabric and wondering what on earth to do with it. The colours of the french flag popped into my head, and voila! The Oo La La cushion was born.
The darling French Bulldog has been hand-embroidered using 1 strand of Perle thread over one of my drawings. The wording states - Oh no, I have lost my bone - in French (or should I say, I hope it does!). With prairie points as a feature on the front and back of the cushion, the reverse side features the missing bone.
This cushion cover has been made in envelope style with a generous overlap to fit a 16 inch square cushion pad.
