|This was in part inspired by the home dec competition, but I haven't got any pinterest picture I can connect this to, so this is just for fun!|
Cushion cover. Intended as housewarming present for friend.
40cm by 40cm cushion.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern?
Pretty close, I added some more bias tape to mine.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Very easy. Great project for a beginner as not fitting issued to resolve!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Quick, cut out fabric last night. Sewed everything up in one morning.
Lovely to avoid buttonholes, and the ties work very well as a zip alternative.
On one side linen (which stretched a lot, dont recommend trying again for a cushion cover!) and the other side cotton. The embroidery is not my own. The lady this is going to be given to gave me what was left of her (passed away several years ago) mother's stash in terms of sewing odds and ends. I thought it would be nice to reuse and then return it in a new form.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Added bias tape along the upper edge of the closure to give it more weight, as the cotton does not have a huge amount of weight to it. I was worried it would be too limp. Serged all the seams round the edge to reduce thread tangles.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Maybe, not in to home decoration as much as I am in to dressmaking. But its nice to dip in to.
Nice, hassle free (well, would have been without the linen!) project and makes a nice gift idea for leftover fabric.
