New look for $8.00


I have had this blue fabric for a while, fulling intending to make some cushions.
Just waiting for the right moment.
Then,
the other night at 5pm, 
inspiration struck.
I probably should have been starting to cook dinner,
or 
do the ironing.



Instead, 
I headed off to my attic.


And whipped these babies up.


Down below a nerf war was raging. 
As I yelled from above to keep the noise down and not to break anything,
Mr M assured me they would be careful.
( I suspect he was the ringleader.)


Did you spot these on the coffee table?(Actually the coffee table is another story)


I have been messing around with more crochet.


Crochet and cushions.
A girl could be very happy!
I have been checking here to make sure the crochet is
acceptable!

  1. What a great look for $8! I really like the blue colour and the print. Your crochet looks great too! I was looking at some pretty crochet covered pincushions on etsy yesterday. Have reisted so far...
    Have a great week!

  11. Only a truly creative individual would understand that urge that cannot be denied! And look at what it produced, soooo worth getting dinner on the table a little late :o)
