Some time ago a friend asked me if I would make her a Union Jack cushion cover, we’d been trawling around Portobello market in London and noticed that there were a lot of very “British” wares for sale in the home furnishings shops, you know Cath Kidson style stuff. So I agreed to make one. I wanted it to have a vintage feel, so chose fabrics that were muted in colour, also my sewing leaves a lot to be desired so the edges of most of my points are a bit crap, to say the least, but it works well.
Simultaneously, in a moment of nostalgia we thought we might as well have fish ‘n’ chips.
Later on we are going to cover ourselves in lard and go for a long swim, maybe back to England!
