I've had the fabrics for a few months now and I knew I wanted to make a cushion cover for the little cushion I use on my sewing chair in the attic. So this particular challenge couldn't have been better!
Now I haven't done much dyeing in the past and consequently don't have much in the way of dye laying around the house. I do however have copious amounts of tea in the kitchen, so a brew was made and the centre panel was cut from a vintage linen pillowcase (cos the quality was fab!) A few minutes of dipping and stirring produced a lovely soft, creamy, beige colour.
A lot of rummaging later and I'd found a few bits of sheer ribbon to embroider into little flowers.
I put a couple of little Velcro straps on the top,
and HEY PRESTO! A cushion that hangs in just the right spot on the back of my chair!
You can check out Lesley's gorgeous cushions at her new blog, http://www.lesleyscreations.blogspot.com/ you won't be disappointed, we both have very different styles!
It's my turn to set the next challenge, so I best get my thinking cap on.
