D.I.Y Envolope cushion

Now, I am honestly the worlds worst when it comes to explaining anything to do with measuring, stitching, or that thing you call a sewing machine. however, I appear to be raft nifty at actually doing it. I have literally used a sewing machine once in my life, and decided that today, with a little guidance from mother I would make a cushion. I've recently changed my room to a more 'girly' theme and really wanted to make something unique.  I was rather cheeky and ordered some free material samples off John Lewis, (using many email addresses) so in all, this has cost me nothing. So here you have it... excuse my terrible explanation and photos, however, have a look here and here for a more detailed, and more understandable explanation. Also, this is just my own 'twist' on the envelope cushion, I had to improvise due to having sample material.




I hope you enjoyed this, Lots of love xxx
