I call it, my ‘Drunken Cushion Cover’!

So a while back I saw this awesome wine bottle fabric online. Being a bit of a lush it was love at first sight. It was called Cream Bottles, designed by the Victoria and Albert made by David Textiles for their The Grand Tour range:

It was on sale. I put it in my cart, procrastinated, decided I shouldn’t spend the money and moved on. Over the next little while I kept thinking about that fabric. About how much I would like to make cushion covers for my sofa from it. I finally decided I wanted it and went back to buy it but NO! It had sold out in the meantime. I was resigned to giving up my dream of wine covered cushions…

Until I was scoping out the sale range on my new favourite quilting fabric website Fifi’s Fabricology. What did I see but my Cream Bottles!!! 🙂 The fabric was sold in 25cm units so I snapped up 4 units to make a couple cushion covers. Here is the result:

Fifi’s also has Pink Bottles, same fabric, pink background. Also check out the Pink Birds fabric also by Victoria and Albert – Love! Bought some of that too, but I digress… 😉

I followed a tutorial by Lauren from Guthrie & Ghani. Can you tell I’m a bit obsessed with her tutorials??? 😉 It has an envelope back that I made from the leftovers of the flowery blue and green fabric I used for my Mother’s Day Gifts (post here). It was very straight forward to make and I’m thrilled with the result. My dream of wine bottled cushions has come true. I have cut fabric for a second cushion cover which will feature the plaid blue and green fabric from Mother’s Day as it’s back. I will whip that one up in the next couple days. Then I’ll have to get cushions to fill them with. The cushion in the above pic is actually the green and brown embroidered one I thrifted on my honeymoon inside the cover. 🙂

For now I’m happy to keep it there as seeing all those bottles makes me happy! I can’t stop looking at it! Yay! Wine bottles!
