So here it is, it's just a circle cushion, nothing fancy or complicated just a plain old cushion but I love it.
Okay so it could have done with a little more stuffing, but me being the impatient girl that I am, I settled for the not- so- plump look.
Not only did I manage to finish the cushion, I also managed to make a top for myself and a pair of pyjama bottoms for Mr. H.
Now anyone who knows me, knows that my sewing machine and I are not great bedfellows and in the past I have come very close to throwing my little Janome through the window, but I persevered and after a few
The top I made for myself is a pattern that I have used before, but even so, I didn't hold out much hope of being able to remember how to do it, but again it was pretty straightforward and was made in a couple of evenings (okay it was only supposed to take a couple of hours but who's counting?)
I even felt brave enough to customise a pattern for a top that I started last year but never got around to finishing, the shoulders were too wide and the neck too high, but not anymore (I think I had become a little scissor happy by this point and way too confident for my own good).
By the way just in case you are wondering.......it's still not finished!
I think I need to step away from the machine while I am on a roll, besides I find it all way too stressful and much prefer my needle and thread to be in my hand where I am more in control.
Here is a sneaky peek of the next project on my to do list, it's been on the back burner for a while but it needs my attention if it's ever going to be ready for the summer hols.
In the mean time I will leave you with this....
it's something I picked up at the car boot a couple of weeks ago and I desperately need a second opinion......is it cute or have I finally gone a tiny step to far, answers on a postcard please!
