Cushion craft

Hello again, it has been a while since my last post so I thought I would do a quick post related to cross stitch and sewing.  I have always enjoyed cross stitch but there are only so many framed cross stitch projects that one can display at home (and at work in my case).

In an attempt to be more creative I have dusted off my sewing machine and converted some of my projects into cushion covers, by adapting a simple IKEA pattern for an envelope cushion cover which can be found online.  The cross stitch patterns are by Weelittlestitch (see my previous post)

I am really impressed with the harry potter one as I spent extra time matching the pattern on the fabric across the front and back (guess I have learnt something from the Great British Sewing Bee.

Guess the next question Phil will ask is how many decorative cushions can you have in your house?
