“Rosetta” Cushion and Make Up Bag

Just finished another cushion – my favourite ‘sew’ far (sorry!)

I can’t decide which side I prefer because, although “Rosetta” is just glorious, “Dotty” on the reverse is a classic. Two looks for the price of one – bargain:)

I will design some more coordinating accessories in the next few days – I think a white bedroom with these timeless colours would be almost too pretty for words.

Any ideas? Laundry/Toy bag, lampshade maybe….

Crochet Edged Cushions

Hello and welcome to “Sewchet”!

My two favourite crafts are sewing and crochet so, for my first post, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my newest creation – cushions with a crocheted opening edge. And, yes, these are the ones featured in the banner above. They’re so pretty I can see them every time I log in!

I just love pinks and blues and these cute fabrics were just crying out to have a pretty edging.

This one’s for the boys; who says boys can’t enjoy crochet too?

Image

I love the change in texture both to look at and to touch, it makes it so much more interesting don’t you think?

Here’s how they look on the day bed in my Craft Studio; they’re going in my new Folksy shop for sale (www.sewchet.folksy.com)…if I can actually bear to part with them:(

I’m writing up a tutorial so, if you’re interested, look out for it in the next day or two. That is, of course, if I don’t get sidetracked making some more in the meantime ‘cos they’re REALLY addictive!
