My Creative Space - Sprocket Pillow

One of the reasons I love blogging is that it keeps me motivated to try news things and to find the time to create.  I'm fairly new to sewing, having only completed a couple of small projects, and this week I decided to have a go at making this sprocket pillow .  

Although my seams didn't line up in the centre, it didn't matter, because that was all covered up with the button! My first covered button too, who knew how easy that would be?

Mind you, it's a little hard to concentrate around here in between movies, playground visits, tantrums and tears on this first week of school holidays, but overall we're having a pretty good time hanging out together.  It's also nice to have a break from the usual morning routine and school drop-off.  

In fact, it's a beautiful day outside, so we're off to the park. 

To make your own sprocket pillow, just visit cluck-cluck-sew for a great tutorial.

Maybe you've already made a sprocket pillow, if so I'd love to see it!
There's also way more creative projects to check out over at ourcreativespaces.

Sam that cushion is fantastic...I would love a huge floor cushion version of this. Fabric covering buttons can get a bit addictive and are really fun to make and use :)

LOVE your cushion - it looks so lovely and you'd never know the points don't line up in then centre. I find so much inspiration from blog posts too, so many things make their way into my 'to make' folder but it's hard to find the time to actually get stuck into projects.

Sorry it's taken me so long to pop over and say hi, thanks for stopping by my blog x
