Sewing and such.

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

It's been a long time since I've put the ole' sewing machine to use, so when we got our new 'big' bed on Saturday I decided it was time to get it out and make some new cushions. 
We have recently painted our bedroom black, so I'm all about decorating to match the new colour. I made one cushion out of lovely checked wool and another out of hessian. I stitched a wool cross on the hessian one to make it a little more interesting. Both the cushions were super easy – I made envelope cushions, so they don't have any buttons or zips in them. I was a little rusty, so I did a search on YouTube for a tutorial. It took me a bout an hour to make both.
I think they look lovely with my favourite Pony Rider cushion.

The days gone by.

It's been a while. Autumn is well and truly here. The nights are cold and the mornings crisp. April has been full of birthdays and moving and changing rooms. We've pulled up carpet and painted walls black. We've lay on picnic rugs, eaten chocolate and laughed until its ached. Life is wonderful.
