The discovery of the most amazing fabric on Spoon Flower prompted me to get crafty for my neighbours upcoming 50th birthday. I decided to make her a pair of cushion covers, but having previously been terrible at sewing, i figured it was best to have a practice run first.
So off to the fabric store! I figured id just get myself a nice plain cotton type fabric for my trial run, that was... until i spotted this.
Though it wasnt without issues - first i blew up the motor on my vintage husqvarna sewing machine and then went on to break a needle on mums machine soon after!
A few more practice runs with some old opshop sheets (with ready made piping) and fabric offcuts
And i was ready for the real deal.....
Two Doctor Who 16" cushions with handmade piping - now the only trick is keeping them secret until her birthday on the 22nd. I wish i could give them to her now as i cant wait to see her face. Sadly i couldn't give her David Tennant, so this had to do
