what a little cutie a roundie pin cushion
Ah roundie love.
Louise and I proclaimed it to be a success. Lou made the baby one to match.
So if you are going to have a go at the roundie and want to use the cushion pad recommended I would make the strips 45 cm long and not 55 cm. I also took out some of the width from the fabric as it seemed too full and didn't show off the fabric so well but I suppose this is personal preference. Have a go though its great fun and I can honestly say it did take a little while to get it just right and I didn't think I was going to like it much but I did I was positively giddy. By the way I made my own inner. Two circles of lining fabric with a gusset to give the cushion depth (which I think is essential) quickly whizzed together and stuffed with light poly filling. I find a cheap way to buy stuffing is to buy the cheapest bed pillows from Ikea. Its light and fluffy and cheap as chips - about £1.75.
If you would like to have a go at making whether you are a proficient maker or someone who has never used a machine before do pop along to the Studio and have a go - I promise you will love it. Louise is a very friendly talented lady who has everything you could ask for at hand and guess what, more often than not, I am there too and I make a mean cup of tea! I'm not bad on the old sewing machine either.
Hope to see you soon!
Oh and if there happens to be anyone out there that would like me to test their patterns then let me know - I love a challenge!
