So here are some better pics of my cushions that I've made. I was tired of looking at my old dirty cushion covers but couldn't find anything I liked...or could the shops. So I thought I'd raid my stash and make my own. I just measured up the old covers and made them myself zip and all!

I have seriously lost my knitting mojo. I don't know where it went but it's been well over a month since I've picked up any of my knitting WIPs. Strangely I'm being inspired by all things sewing.

I finally bought my son some blockout curtains and it turns out they are too long. So I had to whip out the old sewing machine to re-hem. I've been meaning to make some new cushion covers for ages now and took this opportunity to try it out. Well, it worked a charm! I used the fabric I bought from Ikea ages ago and just tried my own hand at it. I think they came out quite nicely. Pictures to follow.
