Garden Song Pillow/Cushion.




Birthdays can be often difficult which is why this year I have decided to make my own!, yes out came my trusty machine . I also decided to join a sewing club and whilst broswing around , well to be honest I was mere being nosey lol , well I spotted a book sitting on the shelf that shouted out to me. The book is "Garden Song" by Nancy Havvorsen and is jammed pack with gift ideas and easy instructions too which I need.

Materials are mostly those used in the book with the exception of the4 backing which is a pretty blue floral but you have to agree it goes well. My applique stillneeds paractice but hey I am getting there albeit slow lol.

Hope you like!!
