sewing soothes the savage turkey

I braved the sub-freezing temperature in my sewing room and did a little stitching the other day. I had purchased a desk chair at IKEA, but it’s not a cushy chair, and there was nowhere to attach my lumbar cushion. I decided to make a little cover for the cushion:

I attached the cushion with some webbing:

Now I just have to make another cover for the seat cushion. I think I need to add an extra layer of foam to it, cuz this seat is pretty hard!
I also made yet another little pouch. I used some of the Hasi Hester vintage fabric I got at a yard sale last spring.

    love that blue zipper on the top of the chair cushion! see there are good reasons to buy those sorts of things at random, they always come in handy! :)

    Good job not hoarding webbing! I need to follow your example and use some of the 40 yards of ribbon I just bought.

    I recently used your totebag tutorial and it was awesome… made it so easy to make a totebag!! I LOVE all your fun pouches… would you consider sharing a tutorial for these also?? I CANNOT figure out how to make a lined, zipped pouch and have it turn out well, I’ve tried in the past… thanks!

    you might try one of the oil-filled plug-in radiator heaters. they really do the job of warming a cold room.

    I’m trying to figure out how to sew a zipper pouch like this too. The last time I did, I had to attach the lining by hand sewing and it is a bit clumsy.
