Exciting News- We are in the April Homespun Magazine

A very long time ago we were contacted by the editor of the Australian Homespun Magazine and asked if we could create an original pattern for the magazine. Our project is coming out in store next week and we can't wait to get our hands on a copy. For Rach, it's the third time she has been published but for me, it's a first!!

We were both requested to create a cushion. After some very excited discussions and planning we came up with a 'Vintage French' theme. We both used vintage Italian linen which Rachel sources where she lives with a combination of vintage sheet fabrics. Rach's cushion on the bottom is a French village and mine on top is a French flower shop. The full pattern and instructions are in the magazine and the picture below is a sneak peak.
It was a very nervous time for us as we were not sure if our work was good enough for the magazine which we both love and buy regularly. With renewed confidence, Rach and I are now busily working on some more patterns which will go in our Etsy stores. We love how the cushions were photographed and are very thankful for the opportunity that we were given to be in the magazine.

You can purchase the magazine online, as a digital copy or in newsagents/supermarkets in Australia.

We hope you like our project and if you do make either of our cushions please send us a photo as we would like to see what you do.
