All the wonderful colours of Piccadilly, one of my favourite places in London.
A beautiful cushion cover worked in two colours producing a stunning woven effect. The combination of self-striping and solid yarns results in a very eye-catching design that will be pride of place anywhere, and the pompoms add a wonderful charm.

30 cm Zip in cream
35 x 35 cm (14 x 14 in) cushion pad
Matching or invisible thread
