Welcome to Wool on Sundays – 67 and thank you very much to everyone who visited last week. :)
This week, as usual, I had big sewing plans but I ended up to succumbing to attempting another project from this wonderful book, by Cécile Balladino (you can visit her blog Eclectic Gipsyland), which I showed last week.

It is, however, another step in making The Makery and it also ticks the upcycling box.
For the longest time, this was my favourite skirt. I wore and wore it until the fabric faded and grew thin. Eventually, it tore and, though beyond repair, I kept it in the hope of one day finding a suitable project to use it in.
Despite my various difficulties with interpretation of both the language and charts, I think this has ended up being very similar to the original. This way of making a flower is completely unlike anything I’ve done before and there are lots of new to me stitches.
I made a few changes as genuine design choices, most notably making the improv bobbles, rather than using a commercial trimming.
And, as usual, there are also some unintentional variations…
But, overall, I love it and it’s my favourite cushion so far!
If you have any yarny posts, upcycled or otherwise, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). Visit anyone else who links. Wishing you a happy week :)
