feeling bright



I haven't been working on my own embroidery much recently so it's always nice to make a custom cushion to keep my needle warm.


I used a bright mix of fun fabrics for this one and backed it in a super soft brushed cotton print I got a while ago. Flannel or brushed cotton?? Pretty sure it's the same thing, what do you say?



That's not the only bright thing going on today because the delectable Molli Sparkles is over at le challenge with a bright tale to share! Head over for a good read.

And since there's about 10 days until the link opens I better get started on my BRIGHT project, so far I haven't a clue what to make - just goes to show, even the hosts do things last minute!

  1. Flannel, brushed cotton, I'm sure there's some technical difference somewhere, but they seem to use the name interchangeably at the local fabric shop!

  2. Sweet!
    Oh and they must be the same! What about wincyette (?)!

  3. What a cute cushion! I've also been wondering about brushed cotton and flannel - are they the UK and US terms for the same thing?!! Maybe winceyette is also the same thing? Or maybe that's fluffy on both sides? Surely someone must know the answer!

  4. Very cute! Love flannel. Is winceyette the same, I've seen both in my local store so assume not!!

  7. A pretty commission! I had to google it ('cos I'm just too curious for my own good!) and it appears that brushed cotton/flannel is used interchangeable. Apparently wincyette is an 'outing' flannel that is napped both sides whereas, flannel is napped just one side! Gonna go make a cup of tea now!

  9. I love this! It's such a great way to add personalization to a cushion and use up some of your favorite fabrics... I need to make one for myself!

  10. The embroidery looks so effective, Lucy. If the backing fabric is what I think, we'd call it flannelette.
