I designed this cushion with giant Pom-Pom trim for Sew Now issue 5. I love changing the look of a room with some new cushions and even more so when they have big fat pom-poms on them! That’s the great thing about having sewing skills, you can change the look of your home so easily and to your own exacting requirements!
When I was shopping for a zip for the pom-pom cushion I happened to see the birdy/floral fabric in Dunelm and couldn’t resist it! I thought the colours worked so well with the giant pom-pom cushion fabric and trim.
I therefore decided to make a complimentary cushion with jumbo piping. Why have one cushion when you can have two!
Christmas is on the way and like it or not it’s time to start thinking about getting out those Christmas decorations!
Back in October we were walking around the shops and Charlotte (who is 7) was complaining that there were so many Christmas things in the shops when Christmas was so far away. She really has a point, however when I got everything set up for this photo shoot both of the girls were begging me to leave the decorations out!
So, this is my latest project for Love Sewing Magazine….an applique festive cushion! What do you think? You like?
The feature in Love Sewing includes templates for the lettering and instructions for cutting and sewing the applique. There are also instructions for inserting a lapped inset zipper. If you can’t get hold of a copy of the magazine then I also have a tutorial for an Inset Lapped zipper that you can use on any project.
