First Cushion.

First off, let me thank all of you wonderful people who have visited my blog and left words of encouragement in the comment area. This has been such a boost in my learning to use my machine.

Also I want to thank my hubby Patrick. He's been so wonderful as I keep asking him if I can sew him to the bed sheets, or his lounge chair. Pat I am sure must be getting sick of the word sewing and anything connected to it.

I mean this morning we took the train into the city for the markets. I had to go to Spotlight as ribbons were on sale and I wanted some Vliesofix for my cushions. Remembered SewDeb one craft shop day we had, buying something for her applique, so I rang her to get all the info on it. So I must say thanks to Deb for being my call centre, for info. mrgreen

I have 3 cruddy knitted lounge cushions that were given to us when we bought our lounge suite secondhand. Well the cats have claimed them and vacuuming them every other day, is a pain as I can't get all the fur out.

So I am using those 3, plus another cushion as lab rats........

This is how far I have got today. Each cover will be the same in colour tones, but different styles. This gives me a chance to try different sewing ideas. The back of this cushion will be that dark chocolate material I bought the other day.

After doing all this, I hope the cats enjoy their new covers. lol

Well time for me to go and learn how to use the blanket stitch with some scrap material.

Until next time....hoo roo
