Bit Of Altering..............

Hello my lovelies how are you? Well I've not done any crafting due to one thing & another so shall not bore you with the details. However a while ago I found sewing & crochet quite therapeutic when I'm in severe pain. So I had some herbal smelly-type cushions in my bathroom on the shelf that I thought I would pretty up.
The first one I did is for Natalies bedroom. WARNING PHOTO HEAVY!!
Apart from a few things everything is just what I've had in my stash forever.
This is what they looked like before they were also in a plastic container to protect them. The one pictured prettied up is the middle sized cushion. They look quite boring here dont they lol.
I'm quite pleased with how it turned out & it looks so pretty hanging next to Natalie's bed & smells beautiful.
This is at the back of the cushion I have sewn in pearls into each corner. The pink fabric I brought a few years back to make bedding & curtains for a bedroom in Natalie's doll house but when I got the fabric I realised the print was too big & a lot of the pattern & gems in it would be lost. So I used it on this, doubled the fabric up to make it thicker.
I added lots of lace & ribbon & a silver key charm.
The centre flower is a Prima Clemintine flower 'Bella', these fabric flowers are sooooo pretty!!!
Made a bow for the corner from some seam binding & attached a Resin Flower to the centre.
Added lots of lace around the edge.
Last photo lol. I made a handle for the top by string pearls together & attached them to the cushion & then I sewn on 2 pearl buttons.
Does not look boring now lol, altho it looks soooooooo much prettier IRL, it was so hard to take photo's of.

Resin flower & Prima flower from My Crafty Heart. Teresa has added spme lovely new items so why not pop on over to have a look, they are super gorgeous!!!
Also there are 2 new lovely ladies joining the My Crafty Heart DT why not pop on over here to meet the talented girlies.

Anyway if you made it to the end then.............YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY lol. You deserve a cuppa & a biccy........a choccy one at that.
I do have lots of commenting to catch up & catch up with my emails but I will be round if not tonight then in the morning. My youngest starts 6th Form tomorrow I'm gutted he wont be at home :0(
Thanks as always for stopping by it really means a lot. Take care my lovelies mmwah
