DIY: Revamp a cushion with fabric rosettes!

This post is dedicated to two people; two bloggers I really admire. To

1. Janice from postcardsfromwildwood– for being an inspiration. She is just beyond normal when it comes to needle work, she is extraordinary. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to stitch patterns like her, but again, maybe its her magic wicker basket after all. Contemplating a thievery. Check her post: Hungarian rhapsody to see what I mean.

2. Kristin from Myuncommonsliceofsuburbia– again for inspiring me to live out of the box on a budget and for the tutorial. She is probably one of the most talented DIY-ing blogger I have seen, by far. And yes, I do see a lot of blogs from around the world, being someone from the digital industry.

The drift

Kristin from MyUncommonSliceOfsuburbia blogged a beautiful tutorial on fabric rosettes, seeing which I was really inspired. But again, those who know me, knows that I’m no good with needle and thread or lets just say that I don’t have a sewing thumb! But surprisingly this time I made it. Maybe, finally, God listened to my prayers of delivering me from being such a lousy-needle-n-thread-girl.

This is a great and a very easy makeover theory and takes only a couple of minutes! Even for someone like me. I took scrap clothing from the side of an old bedspread that matches my new quilt, tore it down to rags (in strips, no precision required), twined it and kept swirling around a knot that i formed before twirling the cloth. And as I went, i kept stitching it to the previous layers from below. My cushion was ready to be used in less than 10 minutes. Isnt it real fun?

  1. Your new home is going to be full of so many lovely things, and as I’ve said before, you have a real talent for DIY on a budget. I love your new cushion, and having just flipped down a couple of posts I adore the view from your new window! I’ll come back soon to spend more time looking over the posts I’ve missed. For now I’m still exhaiusted after all my studying and I have to get ready for my part in the International Island Games which start here next week. Thank you for your lovely comments about me and my blog. Back soon, and I’ll also reply to your last email…

    • Janice!!! So, good to have you back here. The duvet cover was extremely beautiful. I couldnt help but mention. Well, thank you for your comment on the cushion! You see, I’m venturing a bit in to needle and thread, bless me!

      How was your exam btw? Did it go well? and yes, you are a part of the international Isand games as well. So much to do and so little time. Also, I’ll be posting a couple of pictures. If you get time, take note of the tub in which i planted the flowers. i’ll tell you why when you’ve seen it.

      Love, Roy
