A Little Glowing Friend

Another gloomy morning, so instead of watching President Trump and Mrs May hold hands again, or even watching the skiing I made a friend for the cushion I made the other day.

If you don't like orange, you're not going to like it, it pretty much glows! The fabric is another piece from the scrap pack I bought recently. 


Just another simple envelope.


Here it is next to the other one 


I'm pretty pleased with them.

Next week I'm going to nip into both sewing shops in the town to ask about sewing machine lessons.

  1. It definitely glows, should brighten the room.

    1. It adds a real punch Once the fabric panels are back up on the wall it will be sunshine all the way.

  2. They look great together - 'sunshine' during these dull winter days! Jx

  3. I love it. The colours of both cushions really compliment each other.

    God bless.

    1. Thank you, I probably wouldn't have bought either fabric on their own, but when I saw them together it was clear they had to be cushions!

  4. Did you make these by hand or are you looking to have lessons to be able to make more complicated items? I think your cushions are great and I do like orange - they would go well with my retro amber/orange glass candle holders from the sixties. I have been sewing since I was 6 - my grandma who was a tailoress taught me and I made all my sisters (she is 10 years younger) clothes when she was little. I can't imagine life not being able to sew.

    1. I made these with the sewing machine.

      I want to take lessons to make more complicated things, although I would still make quilts by hand. When I was younger I made clothes and things too, but I haven't done it for over 20 years so I've forgotten so much. Getting right back to basics I think would really help.

  5. Although orange is not a favourite colour, I have colours that I dislike far far more. ...pink....gah! However, I do like your cushions 😊

    1. Thanks! I have a fair amount of pink in the house too. I'm not a fan of blue, although I have some of that in the house too! Apparently I'm not that fussy!

  6. I loved the fabric, reminded me of my first home when we got married.
