January Sewing Challenge - The Finished Cushion

Yay, I did it!  I made a cushion before the end of the month and here it is:


The design is inspired by a motif I saw in a colouring book.  I chose the fabrics based on colours I tried both on paper and on the laptop.


I'm not sure that I like it that much.  It's OK but the idea seemed better than the outcome.  I would have liked to make a slightly different version of this design, but that would have entailed some precision cutting and a lot more sewing. Maybe something I'll revisit.  The important thing is that I made something and dusted off those cobwebs. It would probably have helped if I hadn't left it until almost the last minute!  On to the next challenge!

  2. I think the cushion sits very well in your armchair. It really is a nice feeling, having completed a project, and when it is as beautiful as this one, even nicer! Good show, Lilian!

    1. Thank you. I have several other cushions waiting to be covered. I really like the idea of filling my home with things that I have made.
