Early this year I suggested to my sister Debbie, about having a paper bag swap between just the two of us. No time limit or pressure to have the swap done, by the time we next saw each other.
About six months later, tomorrow is the day we'll give each other our paper bags back.
Debbie gave me a beautiful flora fabric and a few weeks ago I hung the fabric on a coat hanger and started to look at the fabric.
One thing that came to mind is how Deb loves my variety of cushions I have made and have scattered around the lounge room.
All finished and ready for swapping. I have the same cushion but in Aster Manor.
Love zippers....yeah I know....bit of a dill pickle aren't I??? LOL
One thing I had forgotten with the pattern from the "Creating Country Threads" Vol11 No 2, is the templates are not correct and a couple are mixed up. Took me most of the day to make the front and I learnt a new word starting with "F".
FABRIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I swore heaps under my breath and I adopted this word as the other word was wearing thin.
I'm not sure if its the way the pattern was written or it was just me...... but in the end I have made the cushion twice. So all can't be that bad.
Left over fabric from the fabric cut by mistake was not put to waste. As I made a zipper bag for Deb.
I can't wait to see what Deb thinks of her swap and what she has made me.
Yes we are also swapping another fat 1/4 tomorrow and no time limit for a creation to be made.
