Anyhoo..., I have been somewhat unwell today, and yesterday, in fact, and spent most of the past 24 hours prone, in the dark, bucket close to hand. Got up at 4.00pm to make some cushions (as you do), and to try out this little demon:
which snuck into the house after the craft show. 1100 stitches a minute makes it perfectly suitable to use for upholstery and the best part? It's the same size as a normal machine, so I can make cushions & stuff without having to find a new house for something this size, 1.25 metres long, 60cm deep, 90cm high (read: needs a large space)...
Anyway, I whipped out some Amy Butler home dec fabric I've had lying round for quite a while, which MGF Kaz waits patiently for me to make into cushions for her, and thought "oh, why not?"
So, here we are.
I had to fiddle a bit to get the tension right, but I think she'll like them. Now, what's next?
