I just wanted to pop back quickly this week to say a huge thank you for all your support and your fantastic encouragement about my first ever podcast which I posted earlier this week.
It was a bit of a nerve wracking affair to appear 'in person' so to speak, after hiding away behind this blog for so long but you've all been so positive about it that you've made me feel really good about making the leap to do it, so thank you!
I thoughts I'd just share a few shots of the Painted Roses cushion and also of the Red Zipper Pouch that I showed you in the podcast. Because it's so much easier to get a decent shot of things with my lovely camera that it is on the laptop video cam, which I used for the video.
So, if you wanted a closer look at anything, here's your chance. First up is the Painted Roses Cushion...
A few of you asked how the cushion was constructed, as the back is fabric and the front is crocheted. The answer is that I made a simple cushion cover myself, as I didn't have one the right size and just used a plain fabric for the front. Then I just stitched the crochet front right over the top of the plain fabric front by just using little stitches all around the edge. Making sure I left all those lovely bobble to hang free of course.
And then moving on to the zipper pouch. I love the fabrics in this one and it's proving to be the perfect little pouch for my lacey projects. I'm also including a close up of that tricky side panel that gave me so much trouble. If anyone knows an easier way of getting a lower side panel like that without faffing around like I did, I'd love to find out!
Thanks so much for letting me come and chat with you. You've definitely convinced me to come and visit you again.
Oh, and don't forget the #CHPainted Roses tag if you're posting any pictures, I'd love to see all your squares and projects too.
