Ever had a great idea?

One that gets you really excited?

I had one last night. I could see the finished product in my head, even knew exactly where I'd hang it once it was done and dusted.

I knew what I wanted but I wasn't quite sure how to go about it.

So the pencils came out.

Then I used a few paper models to get my head around it before I tried some prototypes.

Hmmm, no. Too bulky on the main fold lines.

Ahhhhmmm, another no. Why are there seams on the foldy-over parts?

Pfffffft.

Not even going to bother.

My sad, messy desk this morning.

But I haven't given up. The idea just needs some more marinating time.

Compromise needs to be made between my brain and my actual sewing abilities!

  1. Don't give up! Who knows what will come of this "failure"? But I'm usually also all for marinading time in these cases ... ;-)

  2. What are they meant to be? Are they cushion covers, or are they meant to open up?
