Version two of the union jack from Lily's Quilts tutorial
Although I still went a little 'off road' with this one as I wanted to use some of the lovely - but very expensive Tilda ribbon I had but once I realised I was supposed to sew directly onto the paper template it all became clear! Derrr! I've no cushion pad for this - oh dear, will have to go cushion shopping but first I have to do the day job so I'm off to Finland for the week. Damn the real world - just when I was on a roll with the sewing machine I have to go and earn some money to fund my 'habit'.
Big sis, Mum and I have spent a lovely Sunday afternoon cutting, sewing, laughing, creating, eating cake - good job we aren't working on piece work rate - we'd be in the poor house but the creative juices are flowing and the results will be coming to a website (made-and-found) near you soon.
Nana Go-go - I asked My Mum about the cushion pattern - she said it was in the Woman's Weekly forever ago so I'm not sure if you can still source it or not but it was called Sit-In and is a star design (that's all she's willing to give away) x
Well, better go and pack. Have a great week!
