The finished product

The final product..a cushion cover. It didn't come out exactly as I imagined but that's because I didn't place the design correctly in the first place. I have a tendancy to go ahead without really thinking about the finished product, ignoring things like seams, extra fabric for zips, french seams etc! I like to do a french seam on a cushion cover if I'm selling it without an inner because there is nothing worse than buying a beautiful cover and finding untidy seams on the inside. Also the embroidery is pretty untidy on the wrong side so I added in an extra facing . All this fabric makes the seams quite thick and bulky but I'm not sure what the solution is... maybe an overlocker? Even better, find someone else to make up the cushion!
