It's easy to get lost in a pursuit of producing creative textiles and to forget the simple pleasure of producing what I would call domestic sewing. This covers household textiles, repairing and altering garments and such like. There is an enjoyment to be gained from this type of sewing probably because we no longer have to do it.
I was inspired to make this cushion cover for a certain glamour-puss in my family when I was last at Beecrafty.The elegant 1950's models and the vintage sewing ephemera fabrics seemed tailor made for someone who is in love with that era. I finished it off with some faded 1940's rubber buttons.
Talking of buttons -
I'm teaching these at Beecrafty on Friday November 9th.
