Mr Sewjo is continuing his steady march through my sewing room at quite a pace, and today I managed to complete another project. A friend of mines little boy adores tractors, he's 4, and all the signs are he will be a farmer, he's obsessed. His grandmother made a cross stitch for him, of a tractor, and rather than put it in a frame on the wall, his mum wanted it to be a cushion for his bedroom.
I agreed to do it for her despite the ugly tracor fabric, as she's been a great friend to me this year, putting me up when I was temporarily homeless, helping me out with childcare, etc etc. I hope they like it, we'll find out on Friday!
I used a fabulous tutorial from Svetlana at Sotak Handmade for the concealed zip, and I was thoroughly impressed that even a numptie like me fitted the zip with no issues!
Moving on from novelty fabric hell to something prettier, I have also made some progress on the quilt for my friends baby, it has the binding attached, all I need to do is join the ends, and sew it down. Did you hear me people, I may even have a finish for you tomorrow, what is happening to me, I've gone mad!
