vintage cushion love... March 27 2013

You've probably noticed that I have a very big soft spot for flowers... especially of the 'vintage' variety.  I've got a huge collection of flowery pictures covering my walls in the lounge, in the bedroom and even in the downstairs loo! And over the years I've also built up quite a nice supply of vintage fabric too.

Sometimes I find it really hard to cut into these pieces, but on Monday, the sun was shining and the sofa needed a bit of a Springtime makeover.  So it was just the perfect time to use this Sanderson vintage linen.

Whenever I want to add some colour or a pattern to brighten up a room I usually end up making cushions, it works every time.

It's just a really quick and easy way to change the look without having to do anything too drastic.

So that's what I've done, a couple of hours at the sewing machine and I'm one step closer to bringing the sunshine indoors... and I've gotta say folks, I LOVE my new cushion, the fabric certainly looks a whole lot nicer than it did sitting on my workroom shelf!

I'd love to show you how quick and easy it is to make some cushions of your own.. If you fancy having a go why not join me at the handmade home workshop coming up in the Summer time at Mac Birmingham.

Be back soon my lovelies with some more 'bring the sunshine indoors/declutter in time for Spring' projects I've been working on.
