well hello there!
a warm welcome to the new followers and visitors
I am overwhelmed by the lovely comments on the give-away
you make my day girls!
now back to the sewing class
I decided to combine crafts this time ~ sewing and knitting to be exact
in one piece, a cushion
(or pillow, what is the difference? native english speakers, help me out here)
but I must say
I underestimated this project just a little tiny bit...
... well ok, that was a huge understatement
knitting the front piece was the easy part for me
but sewing the knitted part to a fabric; to the border; to the jeans at the back; in all straight lines
took me hours and hours, a lot of thinking and the first broken needle on the machine
so again, I learned a lot
and am again happy with the result!
the jeans at the back is a used jeans from the boyfriend, with marks from renovating the house in Sweden
don't you love the combination of this roughness with the sweet little flower border in the middle?
I put it on a chair to give you an idea of the size of it
it measures 50x50 cm without the border
next week: sewing class #8, the last class of the course
any good advice on what project to start this last class? challenging sewing ideas? new techniques for me?
I would love to get some inspiration from you!
wishing you a lovely Thursday
