Daisy's Thursday makes

Rosie came home for a visit last night.
We have spent all afternoon sewing together
and trying out samples on my sewing machine. 
Then I started to do some ironing and came across this piece
of pink (pink I hear you say?) yes pink spotty fabric.

Further down the ironing pile was this linen CK tea towel which I
bought last year in Cornwall but so far had no idea 
what to do with it.
It was far too pretty to use.
looking good next to pink spotty fabric though...

While I was sorting out the box cupboard yesterday
morning ( I was actually putting the Christmas decoration boxes
away that I had left out in Rosie's bedroom!)
Bad mother!
(sorry back to the story)
 I found a spare cushion pad ...

One cushion cover finished in
ten minutes flat!

I just attached a pink spotty piece at the top and bottom
of the tea towel and made a small hem.
Then, with the right sides folded over each other, 
I sewed down each side of the tea towel.
After turning it back to the right side I then inserted my
cushion pad through the pink spotty flap.
Job done!

All finished in time for tea!.

I'm quite pleased with how the reverse has turned out too.

I've also been playing with some of the
buttons I got for Christmas.
These little cotton covered buttons
had something to say...

so I helped them with a few words of embroidery.
I'm off to do a spot of crochet.
Have a good evening folks.
Love Daisy xxx
