A request was made, for a cushion cover starring a beach scene. Well, I had done something like this before, so, lets get to it...
and the back- quite simple, so that was the first gift made this Christmas.
Someone else wanted an apron. Do you recall, a few years ago, some duck themed kitchen accessories?
A matching apron seemed suitable, so this little creation materialised, I almost never throw stuff out if there is a remote chance of it's being pressed into service once more, so, an apron gift was made.
And I saw a tutorial, for making a zippy pouch, mainly using the overlocker, including zip insertion with the overlocker- I kid you not, these zips went in using the overlocker! Yes, topstitching was on the flatbed, but they were quick and simple to make.... one for a daughter, one for a son's girlfriend- yes she is a dream, she sews too!
And then, I could not leave my other daughter out- she gets a matching cushion , to go with the quilt she had for her birthday.
no, she really doesn't like hedgehogs, you know.... I love this hedgehog fabric, with it's subtle colours.
And she seemed quite pleased too!
I had less sewing time than I wished for, as I was ( and still am ) knee deep in costume making...
No silk here, but still gorgeous! Are you not jealous of my being able to sew with such lovely fabrics!
