My lovely nieces came to stay last night and it was the perfect opportunity to do a little crafty project with them. Last time we made peg dolls and this time we made appliqué cushions. We designed the shapes and then drew them onto paper-backed bondaweb which makes the shapes easier to cut out. You can them peal the paper off and iron them onto the backing. I quickly ran round the edges of the main shapes with the sewing machine and then I sewed the cushion squares together to make up the cushions. It was a fun way to spend a sunny Sunday morning.
They both chose a motif they wanted to do and then chose the fabrics they liked.
Lila chose a butterfly motif made out of Japanese cottons.
Flo chose a selection of hearts made from polka dot fabrics.
