Cushion shaped design in blackwork

Here you can download a very nice blackwork design that has a cushion shape. It is over 400 years old, and we found it in an old book presenting examples of blackwork designs that can be applied in embroidery or jewelry making. If you are looking for blackwork designs, feel lucky as we have drawn several of them just for you! Click on the following links to find them: Collection of blackwork ornaments, Lozenge and roundel blackwork designs.

As you can see, the design is very nice, and if you have the will you can use it to make a cushion that will be not only useful, but also a real work of art. The design will also look attractive if you paint it with any dark color instead of black. The design is cushion-shaped, but if you use vector or 2D CAD programs, you can easily deform it into a rectangular shape using an appropriate command. Thus you will get a brand new blackwork design. We hope you like this design, and that you will get an idea on how to use it. As you can see, although this is an extremely old blackwork design, its universal beauty has been kept up to the present day.
