Scrap Happy January 2020

January 14, 2020

Happy New Year – new decade – to all happy scrapers

the finished December scrappy cushion cover

as always, click on the image to enlarge

it was fun to include a Canada goose

I love cross stitch

the cushion is finished with piping made from hand cut bias binding

not as fat as I would have liked but that was all the fabric of that colour

the back is a sample of designer fabric

and the zipper is recycled from an old bag

it needs a filler cushion of the proper size

but the police are begging people not to drive on our icy/snowy roads so I didn’t drive across town to get one

and it is snowing again

here are the links to other scrap happy people, taken from Kate’s blog

they generally post on the 15th of each month

    Wow — that seems like a perfect ScrapHappy project! And stay off the roads while it’s so snowy — the cushion insert can wait. 🙂

      Sunny – I’m always working with scraps of this and that, sometimes the projects take a lot of time. Snow is melting.

    Great pillow; I’m inspired to return to embroidery! (As if I need more projects. LOL)

      Claire – I started embroidery at a very early age and have never really stopped. That’s where the name of the blog came from.

    That turned out beautifully!

    I was sitting in your living room and I didn’t see it! Drat…

    It’s gorgeous – like Kate, at first I thought there was a zigzag edging.

    I love, love, love this, especially the cross-stitch edging, which makes it look as if it had pointy edges. Beautiful zipper insertion, too. BTW, we have one new member, Sunny, and you can pick up her link from my post, just out.

    There is so much detail on that cushion! If I was sitting looking at it I would keep finding new things to enjoy.
