Cushion Commissions Pt.2

The second cushion cover that I have been asked to make is to include a pineapple, so I decided that the best way to represent this was to pad the main part of the fruit using wadding, and stitching the geometric pattern using a manipulated straight stitch.

My template

I then appliqued on the top of the pineapple using 2 different shades of green, which was then embroidered to give the shape of the leaves.

All that was left was the zipper and to sew up the sides!
