So my lovely fabric turned up yesterday from Hong Kong! Today I decided to get the cushion covers made for my two remaining bare squashy cushions.
Last week I ordered an A2 size cutting mat so I could make my cuts a bit straighter than using my normal material scissors and use the rotary cutter my husband bought me a couple of years ago. Turns out I still can’t cut very straight but it was still straighter than my usual cutting!
I decided this time to cut my material to the size of the cushion in this case 60cm x 60cm because I wanted them to be a little snug and plump the cushions up a bit. As I’ve mentioned before, they are feather filled and squashy so can flatten out a lot when sat on.
This time my backing fabric was attached a bit more skillfully – i.e. the right way round and not so baggy and with a decent width hem.
So here they are all together and then detail of one on it’s own and now being happy enough to photograph the back!
One of many things I have learnt from making these cushion covers is that I need more room to work! My kitchen table isn’t really all that big. One day I shall have a lovely craft room with a table big enough to pull out to use when I need it, storage places for everything and I won’t have to put my sewing machine away every time we want to eat at the table!
