Beaux- quet ( craft idea)
Beaux- constrictor ( more difficult project to do)
Next – my little home made vinyl number. I picked this deep red vinyl up on a roll in ikes imporium. A dive of a shop- kind of a mixture of an opp shop and a $2 shop.
It was under $10 per m.
As I said- this was a tricky project. My mum helped me sew the cushion as vinyl is tricky to see on a machine.
The zip was a beaux- constrictor to put in. But great satisfaction on completion.
I saw a similar cushion in notebook magazine made out of brown felt. It was $129 just for one cushion. I was so not prepared to pay that much. But I really wanted one.
Mine cost under $10. But it was time consuming.
I drew the basic squiggle shape onto the surface of the red vinyl with a marker pen.
Then I sticky taped the string all the way around the shape to hold it in place. Next I sewed it onto the vinyl with white cotton ( in and out….in and out with the needle and thread….. Following the line. Partly watching sound of music on tv- ha ha).
Once attatched- I pulled the sticky tape off.
My cushion was stuffed, zipped up and now complete.!! It has prize position on our bed with the other red rapee- brand cushions and the delightful one my mum gifted me with all the ribbons and buttons.
A tricky project – but great fun and lovely to decorate a bed with.
