Pause for some Cushions ;)

Well, in the process of making my Quilt, I was given another fun project, chair cushions for my MIL’s porch. Their made of outdoor canvas material, and are just a simple boxed cushion. I added ties to each corner to secure them to the chairs. The fabric is super easy to work with, and the colors are so vibrant and happy. 😉 It was nice to have a little breather, in between making my quilt.

Sorry I was meaning to post up pics a few days ago, but didn’t get the chance to. My Mil also has a bench rocker on her porch that I may be making a longer matching cushion for. Unsure if that’a happening yet, but if it does, I’ll share pictures with you…of corse.

So my next post will be my finished quilt. I am working on making some pillow cases and matching throw pillows. Although, I’m at a dead end currently, I have to make a quick run to my local fabric store to get only….get this….ONE yard of fabric. HA only one!!! I need to make another pillow case, go figure I decide to make pillow cases and I run out of fabric, just my luck. Oh well, just another excuse to head to the fabric store, which is like my mall. I could get lost in there and not even care if I was found.

Ok well, it’s late and I need to wrap this up and head to bed.

Thanks for reading, and be on the look out for my next post!!





Attempting New things

Hello, I hope this post finds you in good spirits! I have decided to broaden my horizon’s and make a more complicated handbag. I’m kinda excited/nervous as to how it will turn out. I’ve gone over the pattern about a hundred times, it feels, just to be sure I understand it PERFECTLY!! So I’m thinking it will take me a few days er so to make it. I want to be sure I take my time and get it right the first time!

Amy Butler Pattern ~ Blossom Handbag/Shoulder Bag

free pattern found on “Sew, Mama, Sew!”

I’m hoping mine will turn out just the same. I was bummed I could’t get the same fabric though, I guess this fabric is from amy butler’s fall line of 2008. Needless to say, I can’t seem to find it anywhere, that’s not a home decor or laminated fabric, to order!!! 😦 So I’m having the most difficult time picking the the perfect fabric for it. Wish me luck guys, on my way to the fabric store today.
