Sometimes Petite Scale Patterns Look So right

In modern times the practice has been to make patterns look quite large whereas, if you go back a little, the reverse seem to be the case.

I created Dereham in two scales, a larger scale which was designed for wall-coverings and a much smaller scale which was intended as a fabric. I decided it would be worth seeing how the smaller scale looked as a cushion cover and I therefore used my normal cushion set with one of each of the three colours in which I created the pattern. These colours are chocolate, magnolia and red and I put one of each on the cushions.

You can see how good the fabric looks and how petite and perfect the pattern is. For anyone with the necessary sewing skills this seems like a good product with very worthwhile results.

I have made the Dereham pattern available on Spoonflower and the link is here. You can see more of my other work on my Flickr page which is well worth a look and which is here.
