I have a huge bucket full of fabric as I did have the plan of making some quilts for the children but then I learnt to crochet and the fabric and the ideas have taken a back seat. Today though I decided that I would make my first cushion, something that I have wanted to get on with for an age, and considering I have had hardly any experience with fabric and a sewing machine I am quite pleased with the result.
This retro lady I got free from the wonderful freecycle and I absolutely love it
The Spongebob fabric was an ebay find if I remember correctly and the red and green were just part of my scrap fabric collection. I think the colours work quite well together especially as my biggest boy loves red and my middle boy loves green:)
And here it is my first Spongebob cushion.
This is the back
I am really pleased with how it has come out, and it didn't take me more than 30 mins so can see a lovely new relationship with my fab retro sewing machine blossom...
