MY LATEST CUSHION PROJECTS…

 

2016-03-17 14.06.58

It all started with this cream and black one which was a piece of fabric I found in the ‘fabric ends’ bag for £1 – it just fitted the cushion I had for the bedroom (which is all cream and black) and I had enough braid left from my previous projects, to put it down each side.

My sewing machine broke down making this first one but I decided to just make them by hand instead, and the second one I made was another piece of fabric from the same ‘fabric ends’ bag again for £1.

I couldn’t find anything I liked in that bag except for some cream rope braid which was a £1 so I bought that but found two lovely fabrics which I really loved. You could buy them in half metres and so the next two I made were the ones below.

Finally the last two I have made (so far) were these two checked ones (below) for my bedroom. I haven’t put a zip in any of them but finished them with invisible thread instead. I can easily unpick that when they need a wash.

I’ve got another couple to make yet from the £1 bag but I am really pleased with these. What do you think? …..
