Cool cushions

Well I put my new machine through its paces today and made some cushions. I bought 5 x 18″ cushion inserts from Linda at Horsley Patch ( a bargain – 5 inserts for $20!) and two offcuts of furnishing fabric for $3 each from Patchwork Plus at Miranda. So my 5 cushions cost me the grand total of $26! I’m sure I would have paid at least $30 each for them in a shop. So my new machine is already starting to pay for itself. I made two plain cushions covers, two with a sham and one that had a decorative insert.
