    How to make a window seat cushion? 11th Aug 09 at 3:00 PM
    I'm doing up my bedroom and want to make a nice old-style feather-stuffed (not foam, if I can help it) window seat cushion. The only trouble is I don't really know where to start! I'm a fairly crafty person but sewing is not my forte. I guess I need to know, do I just buy a load of feathers off ebay?!! I like the cushions (box cushions?) with the 'piping' round the edge. It's quite a large trapezoid window seat so I don't know if I need to make two separate cushions. In fact I know nothing at all - help!

    PS if this is a major sewing project and not one to be attempted by an amateur please tell me and I'll find a pro to do it instead... just trying to save money.

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading

  • You can judge your age by what #cilla means to you. For me its not the singing, its blind date and surprise surprise. Sad news #ripcilla
