WIP Wednesday

Morning! My current WIP is turning this square into a cushion cover

I've been following Bunny Mummy's tutorial for sewing a fleece cover as I am not confident at sewing at all and her tutorial has lots of pictures and makes it all look very simple.

I have already discovered that the process is so much easier if you have proper pins and sharp scissors. My next discovery was that I can still do blanket stitch the way I was taught it at school when I was about 8. My technique has about the same finesse as then too!

As long as no one looks too closely it should be fine lol. And it is for the back of the cushion anyway ;-) It's quite nice doing something other than knitting or crochet. Aside from when I accidentally stabbed myself with the needle :-S

  5. I, too, fear sewing things to my crocheted/knit projects, so I admire your bravery. Your stitching looks great!

  6. Looks great! I have a bit of sewing phobia ... goes back to my school days, there was a "finger meet the sewing machine needle" incident that scared me for life, lol

    1. Mine aren't great either. Hopefully the worst of it will be hidden inside the cover or on the back of the cushion :-S

  8. Lovely cushion, I must make some too but the sewing bit puts me off - too lazy to get my machine out! Love your blanket stitch it will look great when finished I bet.

    1. Thank you :-) I got rid of the sewing machine I was given years ago as I didn't think I'd ever use it. Wishing I hadn't now lol

  9. Lovely- so bright and cheery! Blanket stitch is my favorite part of sewing- I find it tons of fun for reasons I cannot explain!

    1. Thank you :) I like it too, I don't worry I'm doing it wrong all the time like I do with other stitches lo

  10. It's great how you're using a bold, contrast color to the fleece. I love fleece. You don't have to worry about fraying and it's so soft and warm. The ripples are wonderful.

    1. Hehe that's why I'm using it, if I had to worry about edging a fabric I'd never get this cushion finished!
