my creative space - prism cushion
Making something with my Prism and Star block printed fabrics has been top of my To Do list for too long. I finally bought some new black quilting cotton yesterday to back them with and got to work on this cushion.
I've been sewing for my shop update and Spring Sale but made the mistake of putting this cushion on my couch to take a picture. Mr F now has designs on it and I must admit I love the way it looks there!
A couple of people have asked me about sewing with invisible zips and so this time I took some photos as I went along so I could write up an illustrated tutorial for these simple cushions. I've given some hints on sewing with the zips before, a couple of years ago, but I think a detailed tute would be a nice thing to share. Rather than being the scary things that so many people fear, I find invisible zips more simple than regular zips. Just make sure you invest in an invisible zipper foot because you need one to sew them properly.
p.s. excuse the crumples, I'd take another photo but its very grey here today.
