My latest completion is a simple patchwork cushion.

Finished size is 17.5″ x 17.5″. I quilted the front diagonally, and then added some wide white ric rac for trim.

I love sharing my success stories with you all, but I feel inclined to share my fails with you too.

I added a lapped zipper to this pillow, and I’m so disappointed with how it turned out – it’s wornky. I’m not sure if I was just too tired whilst I was doing it, but obviously something didn’t work. I added lapped zippers to my commission cushions and they turned out really well, so I’m super disappointed with this one :(

Uneven Lapped Zipper :(

I was going to add this to my sale stash, for when I start selling my items, but I feel like nobody would want to buy this .. What do you think?

  1. Aww it’s super sweet, and as for the wonky zip yes I know your disappointed, but to me it proves it’s hand crafted and not just churned out by the dozen in a factory, yes someone will buy it its beautiful xx
