Cushion Cover & Cozy Kitty 2

This weekend, I have made the new Cozy Kitty and a cushion cover with zipper!

The zipper was done by following instruction on this great you tube video 'don't be intimidated by zippers' - lol.

Kitty made with fabric from Fabric Inspirations and felt with 'Wonder Under'.
Cushion cover made in Japanese linen cloth from Fabric Inspirations.

Cozy Kitty (Amy Butler Pattern)

My second attempt was to sew using a pattern I downloaded for a Cozy Kitten from Amy Butler Design.  As recommended by Oofta Studio.

I got the fabulous fabric from Fabric Inspirations - it really is top quality fabric.

I am going to re-make the kitten with the felt face, as suggested, and I am hoping to give the updated version (with felt face) to my nephew for his 1st birthday gift.

The hardest part was stitching around the eyes - I tried to use the zig-zag stitch on my machine but it didn't work, not sure why ...

Love Hearts for Our Wedding

I recently purchased my first sewing machine after trying to sew the stuffed hearts by hand and found it extremely time consuming.  (I found the tutorial for the stuffed hearts on Design Sponge).

This was my first attempt at sewing using my machine and although the hearts have not come out as nicely as on Design Sponge, I think it's a pretty good first attempt!
