And this kind of panic leads to sewing disasters....
but first the good stuff :)
Another commission, two kids book bags (for twin girls) and a large cushion cover. The cushion was fun because I was handed the old one (on the left) and asked to replace it "in the same colour scheme but a bit more interesting"....I really hope this will fit the bill!
There's more, but I can't show it just yet.
Did I mention a sewing disaster? Sigh.
It all started pretty well. The request is for four dining room chair cushions destined for brother number 2 and his girlfriend (also hopefully not blog readers). I've never made these before so I'm in "make it up as you go along" mode. I started by purchasing four cheap cushions and unpicking the covers on them (Tip: this worked out at half the price of having foam cut to order!)
Encouraged by this, and with the learnings of zip number 1 under my belt, I embark on cover number 2. It goes like a dream, the zip, the piping, the corners...I even finish the insides with a zigzag stitch.
Number 2 is on the left...can anyone spot why I am officially a Doofus?
Yes, the fabric is upside down. I think I want to cry :(
James says it won't be noticeable when people are sitting on them....had to smile at that...am giving up for this evening and am going blog surfing...goodnight all!
