A Crumb Cushion

My crumb cushion is finished and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. It's bright, happy and has a home right there on my couch.

I was out with my friend Lianne (who is new to blogging and you can see her blog here) during the week and we had a little look around Kmart. Honestly, I can always find something to buy at Kmart. On this day, it was a pretty new tea towel. As a tea towel, the fabric isn't brilliant and probably not great at drying dishes, but it was perfect for the backing for my new cushion.

I'm glad that I had a go at making a crumb project, but I'm also happy to report that after not emptying my bin in the sewing room for the weekly collection, it's now empty and all of the little scraps which I didn't use have all gone away. 

Time to start fresh.

    1. Thanks Daryl. It's such fun, though I really should be more organised and keep the teeny pieces beside my machine to use as leaders and enders. Have a great week!

  2. Great looking cushion and what a great idea for your backing - always good to 'think outside the box' when it comes to crafting :)

    1. Thanks Lesley. It was fun to use the tea-towel for the backing. I showed a friend who asked if I could make her some cushions for her couch. I told her I'd be happy to teach her how to make them for herself and then she could make as many as she wanted.

    1. You can have a treasure hunt around your sewing room when you want to put your crumb blocks together :)
