Jour neuf

was both pratical and fun! I made a bean bag cube following a pattern. This was the new thing; I've never before followed a sewing pattern. My bags / purses etc where made following instructions in a book and very straightforward. But as I'd like to go onwards and upwards with my sewing - even try making clothes, being able to read and follow patterns is quite important...

It was by no means a hard pattern to follow, but that it made it a good starting point as I do tend to freak out if something seems too hard! And I now know what selvage is!

It is a very cool bean bag actually, lovely brown faux suede material, and good for putting my feet up on. I will attempt to post photo later.
