    Doorstop – Full Tutorial

    This summer we had the doors and windows open a lot and doors were banging shut so we needed at least one doorstop. They tend to be rather ugly or boring so I had a go at making one.

    Easy Peasy Cushion Covers

    Cushion covers can be so easy to make, without press stud fastenings or fiddly zips. All the skill you need is the ability to sew in a straight line. I do mine on the sewing machine but you could even do them by hand. This demonstration will use a latchhook kit I made and then needed to turn into a cushion cover.
