I've had these four small cushions lying around for several years, I bought them from that large Swedish furniture store quite cheaply, intending to make covers for them. You know how it is, you get an idea, and what starts off as good intentions sometimes fizzles out as time passes by, and projects get pushed to one side. Now it's time to do something with them. I don't actually need or want four small cushions, but what I could do with is a large cushion which can be used as a cat bed. Might as well make something usefull with them.
So I opened them up on two sides and removed the stuffing, then stitched them together, and restuffed them making one big cushion.
I thought about using smaller pieces of fabric and making a patchwork cover, I have some samples which would do the job just fine. But I thought I could make it easier for myself and get the job done quicker, by finding two large pieces and sewing them together. I bought a cotton dress from a car boot sale some time ago, the lady was selling five items of clothing for £1, in aid of her Rabbit Rescue she runs. The dress had a flared skirt so quite a lot of fabric in it. I have already used the bodice from it for other projects.
It's not ready yet Mayze, are you trying it out for size, ha ha.
I save all the zips from clothing I cut up, you never know when they might come in usefull. I found a long dark blue one which fits perfectly.
That's it, finished, now who's going to try it first. Aha, Heidi is on it straight away.
This is lovely mum, I claim it as my new bed. Thanks.
