Rule Brittania.....

Have you ever walked past a shop window and seen something adorable and thought, "oh I could make that", only to come home and discover that your attempt was a disaster and you wished that you'd bought the thing that you saw in the window in the first place!
It happens to me all the time.
But not this time!
Yesterday R and I saw some fabulous Union Jack pillows that we both really liked. So I made some by paper piecing the blocks. I know the layout is not true to real Union Jack layout but they're pretty damn cute regardless.
So cute in fact, I made some pin cushions which really tested my paper piecing skills on tiny bits of paper and with tiny seams.

The cushions measure 28x36cm and the pin cushions 14cmx18cm.
