Do you know that I do lots of sewing that never makes it to the blog?
I do! Mostly cardigans and t-shirts. This would be a really boring blog if I showed you all the cardigans and t-shirts I make. And knickers. This would be a really weird blog if I showed you all the knickers I make.
But I also trial patterns, and make class sample, and make stuff I just forget to blog about.
Here are a few cushions I made a couple of weeks back as class samples. One with buttons (and sailboats! Mr D likes sailboats):
And one with bobbles (because bobbles make everything better):
And lastly, one with an appliquéd kiwi (because New Zealand!).
The fabric for the sailboat, and the wool plaid and red for the appliqué cushions are things I picked up at Fabric-a-Brac in Palmy and Wellington, respectively. The bobble cushion is made with fabric I inherited from Nana, and have held on to because I knew that one day it would be perfect for something.
I’m liking these so much I’m beginning to think I should make a blue slipcover for the couch and go red, ivory and blue in the lounge for a while…
I photographed the process of making the appliqué and button cushions so I could do tutorials, but the photos are a bit problematic because bright red isn’t great for details. Silly mistake of mine!
