A Finished Object (gasp!): Patch! Cushion

I know, I've actually finished making something ... anyone would think the planets had aligned and the end was nigh!  (Well, hopefully that's not the case, but if it does happen, I take full responsibility.  Soz.)

In fact, I have finished two objects, but I don't want to overwhelm you and risk your health, so I'll give you a couple of days to recover before I post the next one (plus the other one is a gift, which I haven't yet given).

And so, I give you finished object the first:

It's the cushion cover from the kit in Cath Kidston's 'Patch!'.  Much as I bellyached about the paper piecing, I do like the overall effect ... I might even try it again.

I found being able to hand sew while curled up on the sofa (or even round a friend's house) very relaxing and enjoyable.  And, I have to admit, I'm quite proud of my tiny appliqué stitches:

The boring bit at the back.  Now I need a cushion pad that's the right size - if I can find one, it's a bit of a weird size!


  1. That looks really professional. I'm also a terror for not finishing things - I now have a basket of half-done sewing and knitting projects and I'm not allowed to start anything new until it's empty! Hope you find the right cushion pad to complete your hard work.

    1. Wow, thank you, that is such a great compliment :)

      I'm so bad for UFOs, too ... Sometimes the motivation just goes, or something about the project doesn't work and it's very off-putting, especially if you can't work out how to fix it!


I really do love reading your comments, so thanks for leaving them! x
