Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.....
All day yesterday while I was putting together my latest project I had the 'Little Miss Muffet' nursery rhyme stuck in my head.
You may remember some fabric pieces that were sitting on the ironing board when I showed you a glimpse of my new sewing room. They were pieces for the front of what I like to call a 'tuffet' cushion which my eldest daughter asked me to make for her to put in her bedroom at our new house.
The pattern I used is a free tutorial pattern from Allison Harris at Cluck Cluck Sew. Allison calls it a 'sprocket pillow' and the pattern comes in two sizes. I made the large version and I think I stuffed it a lot fuller than Allison which is, I think, what gives it its more 'tuffety' (yes, that is a word!) appearance.
There is also a really cute 'sprocket pincushion' tutorial on Allison's blog which looks like a lot of fun to make.... maybe my next project? Have a good week!
