Scrappy Floor Cushion ~ Boys Can Sew!


I love how creative my little monkeys are!  I had my old sewing machine serviced so the boys and Maya could start using it with supervision.  Kane managed the first go,  and this cushion has been a work in progress for about 5 months.

We all know its great fun going through all the fabric scraps and pulling out the favourites and arranging them but learning and practicing an accurate quarter inch seam is another thing...  So there was a lot of practice, and some unpicking, and a bit more but Kane got there.


Kane picked out all the fabric and arranged the layout and pieced the blocks together.  He loves orange and arranged a bright pop in the centre which he is very happy with.  I quilted the cushion with lots and lots of rows around half an inch apart.

I'm so impressed with how it all came together, it's huge and perfect for Kane to use around the house.

So he should be stoked with it- what a great effort- love his 'pop' of colour. Good to get them onto the sewing machine early! Can't wait to see what the others produce.
