Last year for her birthday, my Mum asked me to make her a Bloom cushion out of Pom Pom de Paris and this week I got it done. Her birthday was only in September. No flies on me!
In my defence I did have a ridiculously busy year last year culminating in moving house, and of course all my sewing stuff was packed away for a while....but really any judge worth his salt would throw that defence out of court as the whole thing only took about an hour and a half to make. If you like it you can find the tutorial for it here. So happy birthday Mummy.....better late than never.
I changed the back from the original pattern to have a covered zip. I don't know what I do wrong but whenever I try to do a decorative enclosure with buttons or ribbons my cushions always look like they're haemorrhaging an insert - not pretty. For the covered zip I followed this tutorial.
I am linking up with Amylouwho's friday finish.....head on over an check out what's been happening this week in craftdom.
