{Sewn} Handmade Home Decor

I love filling my house (or ‘feathering my nest’) with handmade things – be it things made by others or stuff that I’ve made.

I find it pretty satisfying to sew some new cushions and feel like you’ve ‘freshened up’ the place, rather than forking out for a new sofa, or other big ticket item. You can re-use some old cushion inners, buy some old cushions to recover from the op shop, or steal some off your Mum (as I did!)

A while back I made these cushions (and then promptly forgot to blog about them!) You may recognise the ‘arrow’ fabric from the applique in this project.

I made them in an easy envelope backed style and used some furnishing fabric I found at Spotlight.

Another thing I made quite a while back was this table runner. It seemed a bit silly to dedicate a whole blog post to it, but I know my Dad will be extremely excited to see something that I made using some of his curtain fabric ….

So there you go Dad – that’s for you! (I hope you still read my blog?)

Have you been sewing anything recently?
