Like many of you out there I just love Jan Constantine wonderful cushions, wall hangings & nik-naks. I have drooled over them for quite some time now but my finances can't stretch to £75 for a cushion !!
Over the Easter hols I was sorting out my Lloyd loom Ottoman that was over flowing with old half finished tapestries, wools & pieces of canvas when the idea hit me, why not make some tapestry cushions using Jan's designs. As I already have the canvas & a large selection of wool it is a very cheap alternative, in fact FREE !!!!!
So here is my progress so far, a very easy project that I can pick up & work on whenever I have 5 mins to spare. I drew the outline of the letters & kind of made it up as I went.
Then I realised you can actually buy the chart from her web site for just £10, silly me !!! Anyway I am pleased with it & I am going to ask a friend to help me turn it into a cushion once it is finished as I am not very good with a sewing machin
