Leftovers from the bunting

Well, I couldn't let them go to waste so I started this today. I know I haven't posted pics of the bunting yet, but I was excited about this cushion cover which really was dead easy and I didn't use a machine for this. I googled square template and found a 4 inch one, printed it on A4, then drew round it onto a bit of card. I then made lots of templates from thin card (greetings cards are good for this). Pin two opposite sides to the card and roughly sew the fabric (see pic). Once they are secure you can start to sew them together. I did 16 and laid them out in order and wrote it down so I know which bit goes where. I simply drew a grid and named them; plain red, Broderie Anglaise etc etc.
