Present for my Nephew
I've made it for my nephew who will turn eight next month. I used pillow cases which I picked up, new in a charity shop, for fifty pence each. I cut out 6in squares and stitched them together, keeping the stitching on the outside. I think it adds character to the cushion. After hemming the cushion the size approx is 10in square. I made a internal cushion and filled it with bean bag filling. I sewed on letters cut out of felt and some old buttons, to add an extra special touch.
The last two photo's are closer to the actual colours. Using my mobile phone camera isn't the greatest in dim lighting, and works best in natural light. I'll have to practise more. I do have use of my daughter's camera, but I don't want to rely on it too much.
Now I'll have to make one for my other nephew who is obsessed with cushions.
