I bought a bunch of linen serviettes before Christmas - I think 6 for $1.25. Since they are already hemmed, I think I can make flanged cushions, with just a motif and a zip. Let's see how that turns out!
So far, I have attached an old doily to one with invisible thread. It's looking a little bland at the moment, so may try and spruce it up a bit - beads maybe, or some buttons??
I want to try using an invisible zip, but need to buy one to try it out. It may be a complete failure, but you never know until you try ;)
