Did you know I do custom work for people? I love the chance to hear what someone hopes to have and then figure out a way to make it happen. One of my friends from church asked for this custom bench pillow and this weekend I was able to finish it up and deliver. It looks perfect on her bench!
What I Loved: The cushion came together well once I figured out how I wanted to construct it.
What I Learned: This was my first time putting piping on/in anything I’ve made. It gave it a really professional finish without too much extra work. It was also the first chance I’ve had to use my invisible zipper foot, and I LOVED the way it worked! I should’ve bought myself one years ago – it would have saved me from so much quality time with my seam ripper.
What I’d Do Different: I’m honestly not sure. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out! Perhaps that I would add interfacing if this cushion would be used and not just decorative.
