Cushions!

 Today I treated Sophie and I to a one-to-one cushion making session at the lovely Millie Moon in Wells. We took Sophie's machine with us so that she could be familiar with her own machine and after a few practice lines we were good to go!

 We chose our fabric, eventually - we were so spoilt for choice.

 We were in the hands of the very lovely Angela who was so kind, patient and encouraging and she let Sophie do it all.....

 .....even the ironing!!

 Once we had done all the cutting and preparation, we were ready to sew.



 After 2 hours of fabulous step by step instruction, learning lots of skills and picking up lots of tips along the way, we had finished

 The trickiest bit was putting the cushion into the cover!

But she got there in the end and here is the proud owner of her new bright, colourful cushion.
Thank you Angela for a lovely afternoon, now what shall we do next?
