Home Comforts

Because I am a massive party animal, I spent Friday night at home at the sewing machine finishing off some projects that had been hanging over me a bit.  Over a year ago I bought some amazing Voyage fabric to be made into curtains for my landing, with some spare to make a cushion cover for the bench in my hall.  I need to sit down when I’m putting my shoes on like an old lady, OK?  Well the curtains finally got made (not by me) about a month ago so I did the seat cover. Big long zip! I even did it properly and tacked it in first.

We also needed some cushions for the futon which sits up the ladder on our mezzanine.  I already told you my house was weird!  Mr Han picked out the fabric and I decided to pipe the edges – I wasn’t able to do this on the bench seat because I didn’t have enough fabric so I had piping cord left over. It was a bit tricky to get round the corners, but I’m quite pleased with the results.  I used this tutorial to help me.

Cushions on the futon Finished productI think there might be some more cushions done in the future, we have a few sewing projects coming up for a very special place…
