Scrap Happy happens on the 15th of every month where a group of us, organised by Kate and Gun, share things we have made from scrap materials – fabric, wood, packaging, anything which we save from throwing away. Follow the links and be inspired!

My offering this month follows on from my last post about putting up with things which don’t work well. A simple place to start seemed to be to replace some cushion covers which were dull, stained or damaged.
This one, for the bench seat in the kitchen, was based on an old cover which I had taken some applique off. Scraps of left over bias binding made the stripes which were deliberately not even – I know my accuracy limits!
Two very simple patchwork ones for the sitting room. So nothing very exciting but a definite improvement on the old ones.
The sofa will eventually have a full set of covers in black denim – I have no idea why I bought masses of that years ago – but the old seat cushions disintegrated a while back so I did those. The rest is on my list but I really need to get my sewing machine serviced before tackling such a big heavy project.
