Last Cushion Cover Complete

-oOo-

I’ve previously shown you four slightly different foam cushions I’d made patchwork, quilted, covers for – here, here, and here.

I also showed you a foam cushion I’d made by sticking three pieces I’d cut off when making the others fit the chairs I wanted them for.

A bit of trimming to even the edges and it was ready to cover.

This isn’t a cushion specifically for anywhere, in fact it will probably be used on the floor or out the garden by my nephews, so I wasn’t planning on making such an effort for the cover this time as I’d made on the previous foam cushions I’d shown you.

I went searching through my stash and found a piece of materisl left over from when I made myself a pair of shorts last year.  (I need to check but I do think that the shorts are one item in my unbloģed items that needs to be put into a “catchup” post before long.)

This time I simply cut a long piece of the material that would go all the way round the cushion with extra to hem both ends, and of the same width as the cushion plus seam allowance.  I also cut two strips 2.5″ wide by the length of the cushion plus seam allowance.

It was then simply a case of sewing in the side panels to join the cushion cover together.

I did oversew the seams with a zig-zag stitch as I thought it would need it it the cushion would get used and thrown about by the youngest nephews.

Then it was simply a case of putting the cover on the cushion.

One extra photo – on the 16th April I showed you one of the patchwork cushions I’d completed but I didn’t show it in its final location. So here it is positioned just inside the front door.

.

So, that’s the last of the foam cushions with covers and one PHD project complete.  I do have some ordinary cushion pads to make covers for, but those are amongst the things not yet started not PHDs. I’ve also got a round boulster cushion to complete a cover for – that is part done but I just can’t find where the bag of partly sewn pieces have been put, but with other projects on the go I’m not stuck for crafting to do.  Keep an eye out and find out what I tackle next on my blog on a future date. And I’ve still got some more Items I’ve never blogged to show you in more catchup posts as well.

Some Patchwork

An Update, Some Musings and Some Patchwork

-oOo-

I’d bought some footstool/storage boxes for the two youngest nephews so that they could put away some of the large collection of toys and crafting things they keep here, rather than have an assortment of cardboard and plastic boxes that were begining to show their age littered around the place – not that they managed to get everything in the new footstools, but the room does look tidyer now.  But one of the nephews decided that the top could be softer to sit on if a cushion was added.  And of course, as soon as one wanted a cushion the other did – so off I went to make a couple of cushion covers.  It did take me four or five months to get both done, but at least they are done now.  Just wish I could say the same about all the other part done crafting projects I’ve got, as well as the “got the stuff ready” projects that I’ve not even started.

.

MUSINGS:

UFOs – for a lot of people this, of course, means Unidentified Flying Objects.  But for us crafters it has another meaning – Un-Finished Objects.  Objects that have been started, and the aim is to finish them “one day”, but there are always other things that get in the way.

Often it is life in general that gets in the way, but also other crafting takes up the time, and trying something new.

As I’ve seen my bundle of UFOs grow over the last year I got to thinking about other crafters and how many of you out there have lots of UFOs, and what type of UFOs.  I’ve currently got a couple of crochet projects, some patchwork and quilting projects.  As well as several bits of jewellery and beading in general, as well as a couple of papercraft projects.  Very depressing not getting them finished – but I will “one day”.

So if any of you want to make me feel better about my collection of UFOs please comment below to tell me about any of your UFOs.  It really would chear me up.

Cushion Cover 04 01

I think this is called a pineapple patchwork pattern.

Cushion Cover 04 02

There is wadding behind the cushion cover front and I’ve done free-motion quilting on the centre panel and quilting in the ditch around some of the other  pieces.

This is the 2nd cushion cover I made.  This time the pattern is the disapearing nine patch.

Cushion Cover 05 01

This time I quilted in a cross pattern across the middle and then stitch in the ditch between the disapearing nine patch and the border around the outside of it.
