Module 2 - Three-dimensional functional item

 I chose the wing-shaped cushion for my assessment piece and tried to introduce some elements which are related to a bird's feather like the "spine" in the middle of the joining. I also sewed in prairie-points in the lower part of this side of the cushion. After the filling they popped up a little bit, an effect I really liked

 The different pieces as well as the strips with the triangles were assembled with the paper piecing method,

 The circles were reverse-appliquéd and allowed me to showcase some of my embroidered fabrics

I sewed in prairie-points in the gusset

 I took up the feather theme and tried to make some out of fabric and thread. The fabric one is stuffed.
