Cushion Competition

When the lovely people at Terrys Fabrics emailed me to see if I would be interested in their craft bloggers cushion challenge competition, I popped over to their site to see what fabrics they had.  As part of the challenge I got to choose 2 fabrics which were sent to me, along with an 18” cushion filler.
These are the two fabrics I chose:

Twist Curtain Fabric

and for those familiar with my blog, this next choice of fabric won’t really come as any surprise:

Campervans Curtain Fabric

The fabrics were 100% cotton and were a heavier weight that quilting cotton, so were perfect for making cushions.

This is my entry for the competition.  A reminder that we all have the power to dream of bigger things:





I’ve used an envelope back so that the cover can come off and be washed, and I have added a couple of the front facing vans on the reverse of the cushion just to carry the theme on.


Lovely fabric and a cushion that is just perfect for my living room.

Why: Part 2

I’ve just looked back through my blog and realised that I never got round to posting the second part of my “just because” post – oops!  The first part of this post can be found here if you can be bothered to go back and look, but if you can't, here is a quick recap:

Sometimes I like to make things that serve no purpose other than to amuse me, and to challenge my making skills.  Well here is the idea that I was working on at that time, and yes they are mad & no they don't serve any purpose at all, other than to fill up my shelf of 'things that I have no need for', but they're fun!


My crocheted Pig Snout


And my crocheted mouse nose, beautifully modelled I think you’ll agree by my daughter Daisy.

So, why did I make them? Just because.
