Cushions are done, Just need to hand stitch the bottom opening closed.
I think they turned out OK.
My knitting needle roll finished.
I am happy with the way they turned out. Time to clean the sewing machine then lunch, then off to Spotlight for some fleecy fabric and then back to charity sewing. I am having a lovely day, i hope you are too.

More Re-Makes

More sewing stuff today. I will be turning these two T.Shirts into cushion covers.
They belong to his girlfriend and a great way to add a bit of colour to your room using clothes you do no longer wear.

I will also be making myself a knitting needle holder. This pillow sham is also new and unused but a different size. I can make a pocket that faces the other way adding black elastic so that i can hold my crochet hooks.

Needle Case

My niece has got the knitting bug now, and she dropped by yesterday and asked if w could make her a knitting needle roll. This is what i did. I had in the linen cupboard a brand new unused pillow sham. It was the wrong size for our pillows but i loved it cos it was quilted. I folded it up to the size i needed, ruled stitching lines and sewed. adding elastic to one side in loops.
Finished half an hour later, a quilted knitting roll that cost me only $5.

Chester the Cat

I have just discovered that this pattern is designed by Cheryl Ross and is called Chester the Cat and is in a magazine called Quick and Easy Crafts Number 4.
I would love it if anyone knows her or how to contact her cos i would like to make them for the K.Mart Wishing Tree. I have fallen in love with it.
