Box cushions and frustration!

Beyond cross with myself. I have just finished a clients order only to realise I have to unpick 2 cushions as the zips are in the wrong place!! Pipped box cushions for a leather sofa!! The cushions are now in tweed. The 2 in question are shaped in one corner. For some reason that I don't understand , call it brain freeze, I "assumed" the rounded corners were going at the front. Just checked the original covers and yes the rounded corners are at the back. Now I get to find out how well I stitched them. Unfortunately too well. shouldn't have done them 3 times around I guess. Rant over thanks for listening.

:-( I sympathize, I hate unpicking. I think I have sewed every seam in a shirt I am making at least twice.

Done , phew they ripped out more quickly than I had hoped. Let that be a lesson to me.

Client came and took them away today and she didn't notice anything about them Horray. She dropped me another three!
I will be glad when this is done as I have a lot of stock to do for my big Spring Flower Market at the end of April. I have a list on the wall of the items I need/ wish to have for this stall, but only 2 items are crossed off as fully completed; Flower bibs and Tutus. 2 items on the list have yet to be cut out ( Rompers & Tie shoulder dresses) and I still have a part box of reversible dresses and a part box of aprons to sew up. 3 weeks to go. Stressed me????

Update. The next lot of cushions are under starters orders but not as nice as the last one which were done in a new tweed fabric. These are to be done from two old sofa throws which despite being washed still have a strange smell. washing hands between work bursts!! Yuk.

When next they're at a stage where they can stand washing, consider adding some borax, sodium borate dodecahydrate, to the wash. It's my go-to laundry destinker, suitable for gym clothes, cat accidents, eau de wet dog, and other strange smells.

****** And I also like to put a cup of vinegar in the rinse water. The vinegar smell goes away once the cloth is dry. This works for me. Barbara
