For my mum for mother’s day I literally threw together this cushion cover. She recently moved house and chucked out a lot of stuff in the process including her old Singer Sewing Machine (see my first blog) and some material she had had stuffed in a black bag for what smelled like 30 years. I procured both of these items.
The fabric had to be washed, dried, cut and stitched in the morning of mother’s day. I actually can’t think of a better way to spend it. I also had to find out how to make piping. No zip or envelope back (not enough fabric) so I had to hand stitch to finish it.
It’s lovely fabric though so I’m glad I rescued it.
