It's the school fair tomorrow and we haven't got many raffle prizes so I though I would make something. Did the usual flicking through all my magazines hoping to find something quick as I didn't have time to design anything. This cushion caught my eye as it was mainly done on the machine but unfortunately it took ages! I thought it would be quick because I machine appliqued with good old non-fraying felt but I didn't count on how long the hand embroidery would take and, of course, I altered the design!
(Also note that I have used a little bit of my precious new material. That is probably the quickest use of 'I don't know what to do with it but I have to have it' fabric yet!)
It may have taken me twice as long to make as I had planned but I love the result, unfortunately so does my daughter and she wasn't impressed when I said she would have to buy a raffle ticket!
