Something A Bit Different


Hello everybody.  I hope you have all had a good week so far.  I have been playing with my new toy - my new sewing machine - today, I am showing one of my first projects.

I used to sew in my early teens and young adulthood, but as clothes got cheaper and life got busier, I just stopped.  So, as it has been so long, I wanted to start small, with something easy.

I wanted some new cushion covers, so I decided that would be a good place to start.  They are nothing special, and they aren't complicated to make, but I had fun making them.

Here are a couple of pictures of them.



** EDIT **  I forgot to mention that, the fabric came from a duvet cover that I purchased because I loved the print.  And I put a zip/zipper in, in order that I may wash them.

Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know! 

 If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.

  2. Your pillow covers are so cute. Looks like you did a perfect job. Did you stitch them completely shut, use an overlapping closure in the back, or is there a zipper closure I just can't see?
