Hand stitched with love, and a few cuss words…
I picked this little packet up on a recent trip to my favourite shop, yup, you guessed it… The Range. I looked at it and thought, yeah I can totally make my own cushions.
I wouldn’t say I was 100% correct in that statement, but I gave it a bloody good go!
To begin with, I cut the hearts out with a centimeter of white fabric round the outside.
I then placed one heart on top of the other, patterned side facing inwards.
I stitched round the outside leaving a 3 centimeter gap.
Then I turned the heart inside out, exposing the pattern.
Then it was stuffing time, I packed as much damn stuffing into that little heart, filling it with more love than it could handle… (resulting in a few busted stitches.)
Finally I stitched that little gap up and viola, one misshapen heart cushion.
I mean, not bad for a first attempt, but this as confirmed that I should not take up a career as a seamstress any time soon!
A friend actually popped over for a coffee this weekend and told me my heart shaped cushion looked more like something else, if I held it upside down. Upon closer inspection, she is right and I have created a floral, ballbag cushion.
But at least I tried! 🙂
Hope you’ve enjoyed my poor attempt at cushion making!
You could make any shape cushion you wanted, but for now, I think I’ll leave the sewing to the professionals!
