My Hands Are Small

but they sew things! In the last few days, I have finished up a project that I started on before the deployment began (which, since I'm counting, was over 5 weeks ago) and finally got myself to complete tonight! I had two spots for a cushion, so I bought the fabric and foam (which is freaking expensive, by the way!! Crazy.) and you can see for yourself how great the need. Windowseat:

But I sewed cushions. Complete with cording (/welting. Potayto potahto!) and a zipper so I can wash them when needed. Look look look:

So the fit isn't perfect, and there are definitely some flaws, especially around each of the zippers, but I am pretty pleased. So if you come over to see it, please stand back to admire.

  1. Whoa! I am impressed! I won a gift certificate to CushionSource awhile back and I've been trying to decided how I want to use my 50 bucks. I recently just thought I might have some floor pillows made because I don't know if I could handle sewing up a boxed shape. These are awesome!

    Oh, and YES, I would love to throw some ideas around with you. Let me know what you're working with and your thoughts/ideas for your spaces.
