 Cushions. Well, I have always had "issues" trying to make cushions. I hate the idea of having to insert a zip, I have used Velcro before in a class and , until now, I couldn't even get the overlap method right.  Isn't U Tube a fantastic way to learn things?  As a result, I have mastered the overlap , no fuss technique and  thus completed the first appliqued cushion for the baby's nursery. Yey!!

I am now in the process of making a smaller cushion with a monkey on it that I have ironed on ready to hand applique like the giraffe.
So, I am off to participate in some monkey business this afternoon.
Angel Blessings.
