Feature :: Pyramid Beanbag, Sew Now issue 6

Sew Now magazine issue 6 features my Pyramid Bean Bag sewing pattern. Perfect for lounging around at weekends (or secretly during the week!)

Pyramid Beanbag for Sew Now magazine

It’s a super simple make. All you need is a large piece of home dec weight fabric, a super long zip and of course lots of beans!

Any home dec weight fabric will do, but how about making it from a more durable/water resistant fabric and make a beanbag for the garden….can you tell I’m hoping for a glorious summer?

You can pick up a copy of Sew Now magazine in your local newsagent, or from the More Mags website

Feature :: Giant Pom-Pom trimmed Cushion, Sew Now issue 5

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!

Giant Pom-Pom Cushion Sew Now issue 5

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!

If you fancy trying out jumbo piping check out my tutorial for making your own piping!
