Well despite losing an hour of lovely sleep, I managed to get my act together and crack on with cushion covers.
By lunch I had got as far as the binding on the first (yes, first!!). I wanted to give the covers a bit of weight, so paired each piece with some light cotton, firstly tacking on the lining, pinning the pieces, zig-zagging the edges before attaching the binding. Probably the most thorough I have ever been.
I then sat in the sun this afternoon and hand finished this little beauty...
I am pretty chuffed with the result! I only mixed the patterns a little as I just couldn't make myself cut into this scrummy print too much!
The second, a more straight-forward square cushion, has been prepared up to binding, but I am a little bit lacking in green thread department, so I will have to nip to the shop after work tomorrow and get number two finished, hopefully in continuing sunshine!
I have another Tufted Tweets to piece, then I think I am going to go a little more adventurous on the pair of Sugar Pops!
