Tag Archives: envelope cushion back

Weekend of small finishes

I am very happy about this weekend’s progress; although, I did not exactly stick completely to my March project goal list. I did have fun which is the most important thing.

A couple of weeks ago, I showed off my first paper pieced kiwi….that has now been transformed into a completed cushion for our grey couch/sofa. To keep the theme of the cushions going, I used the same spoonflower fabrics (designed by Holli Zollinger) I used for the bolster cushion, for the envelope back of this one too. Here’s the great addition:

The next two projects rose from the triple zipper pouch (TZP) finish and trying to put ideas together for new stock (targeted for Western Wakes Farmers Market Craft fair in May). I made a pencil case, out of the same fabric I used for the TZP. This resulted from a mistake when I cut the fabric the wrong direction, based on the pattern, for the TZP….but it worked perfectly for this little pencil case (measures ~9 in. x 3.75 in.).

How could I ignore the “Is that for me, Mum? Where’s my case/pouch?”. So, the second project along these lines was for a single zipper pouch for my son. I love this fabric, it is so fun and great for a boy. It is “Blue Newsprint Circus Elephant” by Nancy Wolff for Kokka Japanese Fabric for the outer fabric and “Yellow Chervon” by Riley Blake for the inside. The pouch measures ~ 9 in. x 10 in. .

That’s it for the weekend, back to working on my WiP for this week and this time its on my March goal list.
