scatter cushions

My new passion....scatter cushions!!!!!

I've made a few for my home and then decided to make some more... big mistake...i loved making them so much that i soon ran out of space where to put them!!

What a lovely craft for anyone that don't have a lot of time. It's easy and affordable and very quick to make.

For anyone interested - here's some cushions that's left. From R45 to R60 each.

Elizabeth's Fashions & Passions

I've heard so much about blogging and i can't believe i'm finaly joining this group.

But i must say so far i had lots of fun and this is the best thing since sewing. Ya i'm a sewing and fashion fan too. My aim with this blog is to hopefully inspire someone to start sewing. Yes i know it sounds stupid, but with the cost of clothes these days you might find it really rewarding.

And if you look around a bit, there are lots of places that you can find beginners patterns for free.

It's worth a try don't you think?

Take a look at my little collection. I've started to make clothes for my 4 year old son and then someone at my work started buying from me as well. Look you won't get rich out of it - unless you make wedding dresses etc. but it's a nice little extra to get.
