Tickled Pink

What a day it was yesterday, rain non stop, and ideal day for a spot of sewing. I have kept seeing all the lovely bunting fellow bloggers keep making and so I thought I would have ago myself. I used a globeltex fabric and a fuchsia pink and white spot. The cherries on the stripey fabric look good enough to eat! I have to say I was quite pleased with the out come and hopefully will be making some more.

After tea, and it still hadn't stopped raining, I decided to make a cushion cover to match the bunting. I'd purchased the pom pom trim a week or so ago from here and was dying to use it. I got the green one too so that'll be on the next cushion. Think it worked out well. I had to put a button on the back as I didn't cut the pieces wide enough and they kept gaping but I think it looks ok, kind of matches the white pom poms.

I'm going to list them in my Folksy shop later today and see how they go. Been a bit quiet over there of late.

This morning I have been recycling some of Hubby's old jeans, I'll let you see once it's all finished.

Hi Jo! Your bunting and cushion looks so pretty. My daughter has asked for some bunting for her bedroom, so I'm hoping to take her out to the fabric shop so she can pick out her fabrics (she is only five but still very fussy :) ).
