Happy Wednesday folks. Here we are at yet another middle of the week sort of day when we all expose our creative spaces to the world and share our
mess, muddle, clutter, work desk with our blogging friends.
Firstly I thought you might like to see what I did with the
toilet foam seat pads I had on my desk last week....
I was given a new curtain by one of my customers a couple of years ago and it has been sitting in my fabric stash since then waiting for the right job for it. As it was a lined curtain I used the lining to make a simple pad cover for each of the foam pads first....if anyone has ever tried to get a foam pad in a cushion cover you will know just how hard it is so I thought it was a good idea to make a basic pad cover so the pad would slip in easier......they work a treat too :-)
The curtain was made of a striped canvasy sort of material with a yellow stripe on the one side and blue and rusty red on the other side so I've managed to make the cushion covers reversable....depending on what colour mood I'm in on the day :-)
There was just exactly the right amout of fabric to make the cushion covers.....It sort of said they were meant for the job :-)
This is just a quick snap of the mess I made while making the cushion pads....especially for those of you who think I never get messy :-)
I've had a really busy week with sewing so far.....thrilled to say business is really picking up at the mo. I've shortened several pairs of trousers, altered two window blinds and on my desk today is this.......
[of course it will stay like this til tomorrow because today I will be playing with the twins :-) ]
I have been asked to make two huge boxed cushion covers and 5 large square cushion covers for a settee out of the gorgeous fabric on the roll at the back......Isn't it gorgeous? It's a strong furnishing fabric and she wants all the cushion covers with zips so they will take me a while to make [and I will probably have to wait til that big sister of mine can spare me an hour to help me cut the fabric first....two pairs of hands makes the job so much easier :-) ].
So there you go....that's what I will be up to this week. How about you? Please leave me a little message so I know you've called by and I will pop over to yours as soon as I'm able to see what
mess clutter crafty creations you're sharing this week.
