Zips away

Today I have been so productive, unfortunately for my family not on the home front but on the sewing machine!!!

I have been dying to make some Christmas cushions with this fabric,

but I couldn't tell you the last time I used a sewing machine, so was a little nervous. As I didn't want to mess up the real one (as it is to be a present) I decided to make a practice one first.
I had some fabric from Cath Kidson which was a second so was fairly cheap(!!) and using this wonderful set of instructions I managed to produce this.

It even has a zip and a lovely little tag saying 'To someone special'.

I am so impressed, it even goes with the plain green one from M&S. 
The tutorial was really clear, but I do think it's a little bit too big for my pad also I did buy the zip too long and sewed the tag in the wrong way around (Whoops). So it was lucky I made a trial one. 
I'll hopefully get to complete the Christmassy ones with pom poms over the weekend and will pop up some pictures once their done. 
Now I'm off to try and find a dinner out of store cupboard finds!!! Beans on toast anyone?
