I'm sure with my lack of posting you have probably forgotten who I am, but I am back!
I have had a crazy few weeks, before Christmas our lodger moved out, so in the New Year we had the task of finding another one. Finding someone we felt comfortable with took a lot longer than we thought! But now we have 2 new lodgers moving in within the next few weeks, so we have been spending our evenings and weekends getting both of the rooms and bathrooms ready for new people!
Also over the past few months I have been having extremely bad migraines and after a particularly bad one at the weekend I decided to go and see the doctor on Monday. She was lovely and has given me a great migraine management plan so hopefully I can finally get them under control!
Anyway, onto the point of this post! I actually made these cushions way before Christmas, but I also made 2 for my sister for Christmas so I didn't want to post them on here in case she saw.
I got my little John Lewis sewing machine for my birthday back in October and wanted to start out with something easy. So some union jack cushion covers seemed like a good starting point!
I used navy jersey, red cotton and white lace. The stitches might not be the neatest or the straightest, but every time I look at them I am very proud that I made them! Plus my sister loves the ones I made for her :)
I think I am next going to attempt to alter a few skirts I have recently bought from the charity shop, fingers crossed it goes well! I will be sure to show you all the results!
