Daisy's day of making

One afternoon last week I found a bag of cushion pads and
decided they deserved new jackets.

I dipped into my fabric stash and for a change I used
some of my best bits.

I decided that rather than have them sitting on a shelf
upstairs they could sit on the sofa where I could see
them everyday.

This is the first one hot off the press...

followed by No. 2...

and before I knew it there were another four!

Next thing to get a jacket was this plain cream charity
shop light shade.

Then I found this fabric and thought that a jacket would be quite
nice for me too!

As I can't make jackets I decided to make
a dress instead!

By the time I had finished that lot I felt like this...

Quite an afternoon/evening but I loved every minute!
Move over Dan!

  3. There's always room for a cushion or two isn't there what pretty fabrics you chose, just like a rose garden. I could do serious ammount of reading in your gorgeous velvet armchair and the cushion looks lovely on it, Lucey x

  4. Loving all of your fabrics and makes...just lovely! That armchair is to die for. xx

  5. Just come across your blog and wanted to say that I love those cushions!

  6. Fabulous cushions and a really lovely dress.
    I've been thinking our bedside lampshades need renewing but perhaps they just need a makeover!
    Fell in love with these http://www.scarlettplum.co.uk/lampshades/table/oyster-catcher/ but not in my price range, you can get the material, which is hand printed, but still expensive. Some similar on ebay but hard to guage quality. Perhaps I'll just see what I already have.
