After weeks of life’s vissitudes getting in the way I finally did some stitching yesterday. A friend was celebrating her 50th birthday after a lengthy house renovation, so I decided to stitch up for cushions for her new bench seating.
Very simple, no piecing, just large squares with a side zipper. I wanted to add some piping but I haven’t yet figured out how to add piping with a side zipper. That will have to wait for a future project. Inserting zippers is not my favourite task at the best of times and I discovered that my Janome has the most ridiculous zipper foot I have ever seen!
Anyway here they are. The leaf pattern is an off-cut of some IKEA fabric that I picked up a few weeks ago and the spots and chevron fabric is a cotton-linen blend homewares weight. I think it might be a Robert Kaufman, but I’m not sure as it wasn’t on the selvedge.
