Crafty Cushion - April Make!

At the weekend, I finally cut into some fancy material that I bought a year ago!  I used some Riley Blake fabric, with some Michael Miller fabric to create a border:


I used this as the front of a cushion cover, and used the border fabric to make the back:


Complete with buttons and button holes!  (I wasn't sure I knew how to do button holes - but I managed it!)



I really love it!  I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

The next pictures aren't in natural light, so the colours don't look quite right, but I'll include them anyway...



(Oh, and I am still planning on doing a giveaway, but I need to think of what to make for it!  I've been a bit preoccupied with leaving my last job on Friday and starting my new job yesterday.  Well, and making my cushion!  But you're not having that!!  ;o)  Mean, I know!)

    p.s loving your yarn and blanket from your last post, I didn't have time to comment when I read it first, but it is looking great. Probably a good idea to cut the number of flowers as you are doing though :D hehe x

  5. Such a pretty cushion, I love the fabrics, they go so well together and well done on the buttonholes... my sewing machine has a function for making them yet I still can never be bothered and end up using things like velcro on cushions!
