My Canadian Smocking pillow

The advantage of having a deadline is that I am forced to devote myself to complete the project. I finished my pillow and I love how it turned out. The most important thing for me is that I tried a technique that always caught my attention, the canadian smocking.  Here is the project with which I will participate to the challenge, a smockig canadian pillow.

 
 
I found this challenge while visiting Pam's blog ( Threading My Way ), is a blog I
visit regularly and that I love, I recommend it to you in case you have never
yet visited. From Pam's blog I went to visit the blog of Rikka (Ricochet and Away
and is another blog I discovered and that I love, I also recommend it to you, she
has nice projects and tutorials,  is on Rikka's blog that I found the challenge.
 
 
I want to show more photos I took, I tried to put in value the 3D effect that is
achieved with this technique. Here are more pictures
 


 
 
If you want to jump on the adventure of making a canadian smocking, Rikka has in
her blog the link to the tutorial, click here,   by reading her post you will find 
the link to the Canadian Smocking tutorial.
Thanks for your visit to my blog.
Have a nice day.
Marisa.

Fabulous! I love it! The way you finished the cushion with the trim and the buttons was very effective. I love how it crosses at the corners, an amazing detail! Congrats on meeting my challenge!

Pam said...

Now that's an awesome cushion, Marisa!!! I love the Canadian smocking with what appears to be different coloured fabrics. Finishing it off with the band around the smocking and then the buttons looks fabulous!!!

Maria said...

Wow!!!!!!! That looks fantastic. Love how the different colours come up on the cushion and also love the trim and button. It's perfect.

Marisa, the pillow is BEAUTIFUL. I did not know about this technique, but I love the look. Great job, hopefully I can try one in the future (other projects first LOL). Thanks!

Oh...sooooo beautiful. I just love the way the pillow turned out and the buttons are so right in the corners. This is something I must try. Looks really advanced but hopefully it is easier than it looks, or.... :-)

This is beautiful! I'd never heard of Canadian smocking before. Admittedly, I'm not a smocker, but my mom is. I don't remember what random chain of blog links lead me to discover you, but I'm glad I did!
