I had been meaning to get these cushions done for quite some time. I had the fabric sitting there patiently waiting, a left over piece of the sitting room curtain fabric. And I had already purchased the cushion inners, and a reel of matching green thread. So all I had to do was just “get on with it”.
Once I started, it really didn’t take too long at all. Just measure, slice the fabric with my rotary cutter, and pin it all together. Have to admit that I’m a great pinner, more is always better in my book. I know some sewers who hardly pin at all, but that’s not my way. There, all done, and Muffy has given the new cushions her seal of approval.
They weren’t in the least bit fancy. No zips, piping, or ruffles, just quite plain with a deep folded over flap opening in the back, if you know what I mean. And I can’t say, like they do on TV, that nothing was hurt in the making of these cushions. Just look what happened to my handy green plastic point turner which I used while trying to get those corners to behave.
This handy implement was from my KnitWit sewing days, and would not be available now, I imagine. Wonder how many of you did this kind of stretch sewing all those years ago? Then I discovered patchwork and quilting and haven’t looked back.
