Make My Week #19 – Cushion Cover

A while ago I signed up for a cushion cover swap.

Swaps are a bit like chain letters for grown-ups. You say you’ll make someone something and someone makes you something in return.

Last week I sent off this cover to its new home as part of the cushion cover swap. I’m not sure if it has arrived yet…so I won’t give away who it is for.

I made it from an old blanket and felt. I’m pleased with it so I hope it is her taste. I think I’ll probably make one for me at some point.

Now I get to look forward to one arriving for me sometime! If you want to see the kind of cushion covers other people are making and sending click here. Many thanks to Vic the organiser!

  1. Love Love Love your pillow ::))
    You have me inspired .. .. ..
    Have you seen the swap Deb (Works in Progress) and I have on our blogs?

  2. They are all so cool – yours included. And I love how everyone seems equally insecure about whether or not they will be liked by the recipient! I really like the telephone and sewing machine ones but this one is by far my favourite – hopefully you get it!!!
