A new Bench for the Kitchen

Hello, how nice of you to stop by. The sun is shining abundantly, so I thought it would be best to make this post now, still quite early in the morning, and then try to go outside as much as possible today. There is a lot of work to do in the garden, so I won’t be bored.

Remember the fabrics I showed last week?


The renovation of our kitchen is almost completed and one of the new items is this lovely bench. Of course I had to make pillows for it.


One side has a very bright floral pattern, the other side a more subtle light blue pattern with small roses. 


In between a stripy fabric with colours of both sides.

It was the first time ever, for me to make a piping. But I’m very happy with the result. Not  too difficult, but it does need concentration.


And one last picture with the table on its usual place:


Groetjes, Dorien

Geweldig, wat een mooie bank! En prachtige kussens erin, waarmee je makkelijk kan varieren, echt super mooi!

Pretty cushions! Piping isn't so hard. the trick to do it easily is to move the needle closer to the seam with each step - far away when you prepare the piping, a bit closer to sew to one side of the cushion, all the way over to sew the two cushion parts together.

Wat leuk zo een bank. Het zijn geweldige kussens geworden. Zo is het helemaal af.

Groetjes, Monique
