I was a little nervous making my cushion as I have never done anything round on a sewing machine before, but I actually found it a lot easier than I had expected. AND....I didn't always tack prior to setting off with Holly, my sewing machine! I would definitely recommend making these cushions as they are simple, but look very funky and can add a splash of colour to an otherwise boring sofa. I will definitely be making another to sit at the other end of mine. Here's a little piccie of sprocket cushion #1. I think you'll agree that any goddess-in-training would be proud of it!
I am actually going to unpick it slightly to add a touch more stuffing, but that is the only change I would make. I really enjoyed playing with fabric-covered buttons for the first time too. And they're so easy to make!
On a completely different note, I thought I'd share with you a little bargain I picked up at lunchtime today from The Works. It is a dictionary of stitches! How cool is that?! And it only cost me £2.99. A bargain? I think so!
