I was MIA again last Wednesday...we were off on another adventure in our motor home and had no internet so I was unable to join in the Wednesday fun....I did put a few pics on my Friday post if you'd like to know where I was.
I'm back in full on sewing mode this week. My desks are full to overflowing with a gentleman's shirts that I am cutting up and making into 8 Memory cushion covers. I started Monday morning by patching and darning a pair of trousers for my son and then had a customer needing 2 pair of trousers shortening so I did those before I made a start with the cushion covers.
I have cut the backs off the shirts to use for the patchworked fronts of the cushion covers and sorted them into colour ways.
I've cut out the 8 backs of the cushion covers using the button fronts of the shirts as the fastenings.
I've now made the first 3 cushion covers using the items that my customer requested so will be working on the other 5 today.
As most of you will know I make a Christmas tree decoration for each of my Grandchildren [plus a few extras] every year and this year I've made pigs in blankets. I've really loved making them while I was rather more quiet workwise and just know they will cause a chuckle or two.
If anyone wants to make a few I have a pattern printed out ready.
