I usually hang on to new fabric stash for quite a while before daring to use scissors on it, but I couldn't wait to use some of the Kaffe Fassett, Rowan fabric, I bought last week in John Lewis, Liverpool.
It was HALF PRICE so I loved it even more. As you may notice, I love a bargain.
I had bought some a while ago, in Black Sheep Wools in Culcheth, at a 10% discount but I was thrilled to find it even cheaper in John Lewis.
The pattern for this cushion panel was a freebie, given with purchases in Black Sheep, but I modified it quite a bit as I found the pattern somewhat difficult to follow.
I adore the vibrant colours and pattern of all the Rowan designers and they all blend together so well, no matter how garish they look on the roll. The fabric is a super quality and so beautiful to work with, especially for hand stitching.
Now I am undecided. Decisions, decisions.
Should make one 2 sided cushion, or two (backed with a toning fabric)?
Stay safe, warm and cosy if the bad weather is hitting your area. We're fine here in North England but I don't envy those on NE coast of America.
It's a good excuse to stay indoors and get crafting!
