I made these cushions for my niece and nephew. It was meant to be their Christmas presents, but I hadn't realized how long they'd actually take to make, so they got them for New Year instead.
This was my first attempt at cross stitching and I'm very pleased with how beautifully they turned out.
I'd wanted to create pretty designs like flowers, boats and so forth, but it was all a bit too daunting for me. Instead I played around with different stitches and threads to get a good feel of it and I absolutely love it. I hadn't realized that Sophia's design was not completed until after I'd finished putting the cushion together, so she got some pretty buttons and a flower sewn on instead. Another nephew has requested one for himself, after seeing these, so I'm thinking Easter presents...
Have a great weekend!
ps. I am also doing a little giveaway of a handmade lavender heart here.
