I am finally putting the finishing touches to the beach huts bag I made as part of Abakhan's £15 budget challenge and will be blogging about it on Tuesday. I made some cushion covers with the leftover fabric (don't you love that about sewing? How leftovers from a project are so useful?).
They're just filled with old cushions at the moment - I was disappointed to find that the Dunelm Mill in Warrington seems to have stopped stocking cushion pads - in fact the whole sewing department has disappeared.
Never mind - I'm thrilled to discover that my sewing kit is definitely on the front cover of the August issue of Sewing World magazine (out on the 20th July)! I knew this was quite likely, but now it's actually been printed (and there's even a sneaky-preview pic of it on that Sewing World link ... go on, humour me and have a look). It's very exciting, as this is the first magazine project I've done in more than 15 years. I've also been commissioned to design a few more projects for them, which is has led to much fabric browsing (oh, how I suffer...!).
It's over to you now. Enjoy your Handmade Monday!
