Naturally Cushy

Just finished up two more large cushions for a friend, the happy owner of the green ones in my last post. Some more Designers Guild fabric scraps made into big fat cushy floor pillows. Once again I hand made the piping (getting quite pro now) and used a divine cotton and hemp blend for the backing. These babies are so soft and plump, makes me want to throw some on my floor myself.

Okay enough of the cushions for a while, I have a few things cut out for Rosa so I plan to sew to my hearts content this week end.

What are you sewing this week end?

Colourful Cushions

The sewing machine has been working overtime lately, I've had a few orders through friends to make cushions. I'm brushing up on my piping making skills and sitting up late at night assembling these pretty things. What's not to love about these Marimekko fabrics? so nice to work with.

And this Designers Guild fabric, these were pieced using offcuts from blinds, sewing the strips together is a great way to use up the scraps, with soft denim for the backing makes for perfect playroom cushions.

I still have orders in the pipeline before I can tackle some for me but I'm getting there.
