I think Dresdens are to 2012 what hexagons were to 2011, well, in the crafty circles I move in anyway.
After seeing the girl's Dresdens at the Retreat weekend, I promptly bought some templates and over the weekend made my first one. It was a perfect size for a cushion. I'm going through a cushion phase.
I used a charm pack I'd been saving for ever. Its Dream On from Moda. I was able to cut two template shapes from one square, so the front only took eight charms plus a fussy cut butterfly for the centre.
For the reverse of the cushion I joined the remaining squares and just made an overlapping back.
Very easy. Super quick.
