A New Hobby

cushion4

I first really learnt how to use a sewing machine when I was around 12 at school, although I had watched my mum from a very young age making all of mine and my sisters Halloween costumes. I had only previously made some cushions, skirts and little things when I learnt originally, and after years of not even looking at a sewing machine, decided to buy a beginners one from John Lewis in their January sale. So far I have made a very simple phone case and laptop cover for Harry, and this cushion! I used instructions from Ikea here.

For my next project I’d like to try following a proper pattern, eventually leading in to making my own Β simple clothing, with much practice and patience. The latter being something I lack in!
