Better late than never hey!
I finally managed to deliver Bec's completely finished birthday pressie yesterday.... and she loved it. Phew. Although she may have been a teensy bit disappointed that it wasn't a pair of hot pants Anna.
Another lesson learned from my day at the 6 Steps Workshop.... I must start using what I have, and not living by that old mantra 'She who dies with the most fabric (and trims) wins!' .
I'm completely in love with the way this turned out, so I had a hard time handing it over yesterday.
If you would like to make something similar, it really is easy peasy.
Just cut a piece of calico to the size that you need for your cushion cover front. Without overthinking the placement of ribbons and trim, just start laying down pieces and stitching them into place, criss crossing over as you go. The more random, the better..
(apologies - blurry iPhone snap).
I made sure to change my thread colour to match each piece of trim or ribbon.

Once everything is stiched into place, neatly trim the edges (you'll notice that this project definitely required coffee).
You can then turn it into a cushion cover, or anything else your imagination can conjure up!
