Cushion Swap - Done!
My first ever cushion cover has been posted today to Australia, I hope my swap buddy likes it! Her blog has a lot of rainbows, so I dug out the brightest prints I could find in my stash, and used an old upholstery fabric sample for the sunny background. After appliqueing the large hearts I noticed a small blemish in the golden fabric - one small panic attack later there is now a little pink heart (on the right) to show which way up I designed the cushion to go.
Not brave enough to try a zip, I did an envelope-type back, but did try snaps thanks to this tutorial on Make It and Love It.
There are some awesome cushion ideas at Punky and Me where everyone is posting their finished covers. My favourite so far is this one by Lola Nova.
And even MORE great ideas every Thursday at Our Creative Spaces, kindly set up for us by Kirsty at kootoyoo.com
