More cushions

A dear friend who lives in Paris gave me some fabric – black and white with the Eiffel tower on it.  I put it away for “something special”.  Last month it was my daughter Susannah’s birthday and another friend Jenny had a significant birthday.  Jenny is also a good friend with my Paris friend –   we all love fabric and making things – so I thought I would use this fabric to make a gift for Jenny and Susannah.  This picture shows the front side of the cushion and here is the flip side:






I had fun making them.  I found some red fabrics and black fabrics and laid them out and just went for it – quite randomly and continued to add strips until the squares were the size of the cushion insert.  If I was terribly clever, I would have inserted a zip or a velcro opening on the back so the cushion cover could be washed – but I didn’t.  I was having too much fun playing with the fabric.  It is a good way of using up strips of left over fabric.

I have a constant companion while here – my Mother’s cat Benji.  We are house minding and cat minding.  Benji loves to sit on my lap and be the centre of attention.  Often it is a fight for the chair.  I am learning to sew with a cat on my lap as it is the only way to get five minutes peace.
