I am so loving getting my dining room ready for my visitors coming next weekend, it is really beginning to look like a pretty Christmas wonderland. I can't wait to see my little nieces faces!
The tree is decked, paper garlands and snowflakes are draped from the ceiling and the gifts have started to be wrapped and placed under the tree. My shopping list of ingredients is getting fuller as I conjure up fun sweet treat ideas and my craft room is a mess!
So today I am sharing with you the pretty invisible zip cushions I have made to adorn my dining chairs. I new as soon as I recieved the gorgeous Brambleberry ridge fabrics from Elephant in my Handbag.com that I wanted to make some cushions with it, but I ummed and ahhed what kind and even went so far as buying piping and gold bias binding for them. But in the end I decided that the fabric was so gorgeous that it didn't need anything added to it and I would make very simple cushions with an invisible zip in the seam.
As I made the first three of them I played with different methods of putting the invisible zips in, from stitching the zip in first and then stitching the cover together, (the more conventional way), but the method below is the best way I found of inserting the invisible zip...
Don't forget! All four fabrics are available from online store Elephant in my Handbag.com who have kindly offered you my readers a discount of 10% off your first order with them.
