Make do and mend with Oh Sew Kitty
We’ve all done it, bought an item in error and then held on to it for no particular reason. In this case, a beautifully hand-knitted Aran waistcoat. Technically superb and a great tribute to the unknown artisan continuing the Aran tradition. I just couldn’t part with it and I most certainly could not do my usual scissor tricks! It is now a very comfortable cushion (if you use the non-button side!) having sewn up all the edges. The cushion insert fits nicely through buttoned section. Yes, it’s a bit wonky as I could not bear to straighten up the edges to form a rectangle, however it does mean that at a later date the cushion can return to being a waistcoat again by unpicking the stitches. Result!
