WOYWW


It's Wednesday again, so that can only mean one thing! WOYWW! Time to show off our desks


I've finished the giant cushions for my son's Wendy House (no thanks to the rubbish sewing machine!) I had to hand stitch all the zips as the zip foot wouldn't work and it just aboout held out for the straight stitching although it messed up everytime I tried to reverse stitch! Time to invest in a new one I think. If anyone can recommend a a good cheap machine with just simple stitches etc, I would be grateful.

Sorry this isn't my actual desk but have not managed any other crafting this week. Looking forward to looking at some nice spaces this Wednesday

What fab cushions and great fabric. If you do find a sewing machine that does simple stitches and is not too expensive, please let me know, I would love one. Have a lovely day, Tracy Evans x x

Great cushions. There are lots of really good sewing machines out there. Just get one that does what you need and dont be tempted to get lots of stitches you wont use. If you have a sewing machine shop near you it's worth going in and having a few demos before buying.

fab cushions - sewing machines like super market trollies have a mind of their own!

cushions look great, I would def reccomend Janome as a make. I *think* there is a cheap one in John Lewis, own brand that is actually a Janome in disguise, ie ..janome machine with john lewis name on it...though check first.

Love your spotty cushions, They'll look great in the wendy house, did you know we're not allowed to call it a wendy house any more, because, so I was told when I used to do play school, that it makes people think that it's only for girls, how bliming silly! I was going to say I hope your foots better, well, I'd never do it by hand..have made the kind that just has an over fold at the back, no zip needed
Happy Crafting
