~ Busy Weekend ~



I was mad keen sewing all weekend. Look at all the pillow covers I made. All done quickly, seams not entirely straight, no zippers just ribbon ties and lots of little mistakes all round. I used bits and pieces, scraps of fabric, vintage tablecloths...whatever! All makes for perfect sewing [my style]. Hope you all had a great weekend. Will show you a picture of my car Wednesday.

  2. Oh my, you got your car! Love the pillow cases. I tried to sew a table runner the other day and made so many mistakes I was kind of sick of the whole affair.

  4. Since I started last week with my third try (in a sewing class) to tackle a sewing machine, I have to say I admire people who do this for fun... Hopefully I will be like you in a couple of weeks, happy and proud!
    Love this idea of bits of leftover fabrics and tablecloths, thanks for the idea!

  7. Oh my your car & your cushions are wonderful! I love the colour of the station wagon and can just see a few vintage cushions in there!
    Your cross stitch cushion on the top reminds me of those vanity table runners!

  18. Those two on top would look amazing tossed onto the back seat of your pale blue car!

  19. Just beautiful. I tell you, you are gently nudging me to use colour in ways I never knew! My lamps stop my heart every time I lay eyes on them. Did you get my reversal thingy? They gave up on me and totally suspended everything... as I am a money launderer you know... part of the Brisbane 'Underbelly" squad. A-M xx

  31. Would you please do a how-to pillow post? Those cases are very pretty.

  32. Loving your pillows, they are so amazing!brought 18 vintage tablecloths last week, but may be a bit boring and use them for big celebrations instead of sewing.

  33. I had a day making cushions yesterday (I can do a basic straight line on the machine)they are for all of my vintage fairs in April. I love all of the more professionally finished ones that I see but perhaps a wonky seam here and there can be just as appealing to customers?! (I hope so). ;0)
