Not sure how I feel about this cushion

Most times, I make something and I love the result, even if it’s a little (or a lot) imperfect. This time, I’m not so sure. It’s got a lot to do with the fabric, I know. It seemed like a great buy at the time … in the shop, I liked the burnished gold of the florals and the retro-ness of it all. Back home, I started finding fault with everything about it. And so it languished in the back of my cupboard.

Enter the a supercheap Ikea mini cushion. I figured my cat might like to have something to plonk down on. Out came the ill-favoured fabric. Thirty minutes later, the cat cushion was done. The elation of having finished another quick project blew over, and I realised I actually felt sort of ho-hum about it.

If I have the time, I’ll go in search of something that brings out whatever beauty I initially saw in this fabric — that’s probably the only way I’ll be able to make use of this eeky orange thing. Else it shall have to be relegated to some other menial task, like being made into apron ties or something.

Well, lesson is well learnt: one should be more careful in one’s fabric selections.
