I had no idea when I started to make this 'item' whether it would be a bag or a cushion cover in the end!
It started off life as the left leg of a pair of Jaeger tweed trousers, a bit lopped off the bottom of my Ikea stair curtains and a gash piece of lining. Oh, and a bit of thrifted tape for the tie. I'm so pleased though with the way the colours have gone together. And because it was potentially a bag, it's beautifully lined!
Needless to say, there was a lesson to be learned from this exercise! If you're going to buy the cushion pad, make the cover to fit it, rather than the other way round. Dear-oh-dear.
Oh - and not that I'm bragging (ahem) but I re-caned the nursing chair that the cushion/bag is posed on!
Oh, and one more thing, did anybody notice I now have three columns? Is it an improvement or a wee bit cluttered?
