mums pillow

Well I said I would use some of the fabric I bought last week for a pillow for my Mum, well here it is. I love this pretty green.

Then I remembered we are going to Kent this weekend to see the in laws so I made another one for Mother in law. The pattern is from sew 4 U and the idea came from Elle Thornton In her fathers day blog post.

I made this basket at a course on basket weaving a while back and use it as a work basket when I go away, but things kept going through the holes.

so I decided to use another piece to line it.

I'm quite pleased with the results and at least things won't fall out.

Tomorrow is my sponsored mile Swim ao I'll tell you about it after the weekend. Have a good one.


  1. Hi Gill (Lucy from Beach Hut here but I've had to change my blog address) so glad to see you've made a couple of the neck cushions. They're brill - bet the lucky recipients will be delighted.

    Not sure if I'm still appearing in your dashboard feed because of my new blog address - if not could you check your settings? Thanks and good luck with your sponsored swim, L xox
