My lovely buddy Anne....Simply Create's very own queen of all things fabricy and sewing gave me one of her Shaggy Raggy Patchwork Cushion Kits for Christmas.....I only got it last week as we were unable to meet up before Christmas due to the mountain of snow that landed in our neck of the woods and it seems that I have been specially selected to road test the kit before it goes on sale to the crafty public....I know what Anne's thinking...she knows me too well.....if I can make this cushion
ANYONE CAN!!!So I sat down last night with a cuppa and the instructions...oh dear you all know by now that I am not noted for following instructions so specs cleaned and in place...brain switched on and here we go.....
all the fabric squares and wadding required are pre-cut...how cool is that....so following the instructions to the letter I matched them all up....so far so good....well how difficult can it be and this may be a statement that I live to regret....onto the next step....sew each square diagonally....one down....just 17 to go and then a case of stitching them altogether....will it look anything like a cushion when I am all done...watch this space.
and seeing as the sewing machine is smoking today.....time to have a play with some fabric and a fabilicious Hero Arts for a workshop coming to Simply Create soon
Happy crafting whatever you are playing with today and I do believe The Furry One will be in charge tomorrow.....announcing the winner of his give-away and permission has been granted for another little clear out.Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: I've had quite a few e-mails asking which ink pad I used to stamp on the fabric....I use Versafine Onyx Black and leave it a few moments to dry before I handle it...this is fine for fabric projects that are not going to be washed...I would assume that Momento or Ranger Archival would be OK too.
