Love and Patchwork!

Ello Lovelies,

Happy Valentine's Day! I am not one for this soppy holiday but there is no harm in wishing people good luck in love :)

I would also like to introduce to you the my first ever patchwork project......*drum roll*.......

My patchwork beanbag pouffe!

I love floral patterns and fabric but as I live with 2 boys (who both have very masculine taste... ie none!) I decided to try and tone down the pretty flowers by 3 different washes of denim and a couple of other plainer blue fabrics. It was surprisingly easy to make and although it is not all perfectly square and accurate I love it! 

Amazingly this project was completely free as I had all the fabric leftover in my stash along with a very long zip that I used for the opening. We also recycled the beans from an old bean bag that was falling apart.

If anyone is interested in a 'how to' I can see what I can!

What do you think? Have you tried patchwork?


  1. Hi Sam!! It looks lovely and really simple! Did you sew the squares together to make squares, and then sew them together?? (if thet makes any sense!)

    1. hello :) Thank you! Yeah it was really easy. I just sewed the squares into squares and then sewed them all together. I also put a zip in to it can easily be washed if need be! x

  2. I love it!
    Happy Wednesday xoxo

    1. Thank you :) I love it too - it is surprisingly comfy to sit on too! x
