Blue Bird of Happiness
Here's yesterday's sewing. I finished off this cushion cover from instructions in Sew Hip issue 10.
I decided to use metallic thread to give a more glitzy effect. And wished I hadn't, as I re-threaded the needle about a hundred times. (OK, I exaggerate just a little...) Funny, though, that the bobbin thread was just fine - all the trouble was in the top thread.
This is my second completed christmas present. Hopefully the recipient will like it. She lives in a crafty family, so is likely to appreciate a hand-made item.
