Scatter cushions galore …

The finished articles complete with the student’s choice of either feather or fibre cushion pad

Today saw the second workshop of the new year and was our Next Steps – Scatter Cushion. It saw a group of eager students arrive promptly and with enthusiasm.

Concentrating hard

They then, having selected their fabric, thread and zip from a wide range, began to create their own cushion cover. They were able to select the size of cushion they wanted to make and how they would like to insert the zip.

Cutting strips ready to make piping

Everyone piped their cushion cover to give it a professional finish, prior to attaching their zip.

Busy, busy, busy.

It was a fantastic day. Loads of chat, laughter and new techniques learnt with friends old and new. Everyone completed one cushion cover and most cut out another to take home and put together themselves. Can’t wait to do it again.

How fab is that contrasting piping?

If you fancy having a go yourself we have another date already scheduled for March 24, or if you’re an Absolute Beginner that’s the week before, March 17.

Look at what we made – well, those of us that didn’t have to dash off to catch the supermarket! 😉
