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.
the other night at 5pm, 
inspiration struck.
I probably should have been starting to cook dinner,
do the ironing.

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


  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!

  2. I do hope you're going to make an afghan kaftan out of those crochet bits :) Love the are a clever one!

  3. You do sound so much like me - when inspiration strikes at any time of the day or night you just have to follow through and do it!
