Appliqued letter on cushion…

Boys need cushions… they may not love them the way they should and in the case of my husband, may not need as many updates to the covers as I think are necessary.
But, when sat on the sofa and getting comfy a cushion is a definite requisite…

So, when wasting a little time waiting for a bus change over I popped into a fabric store, rummaged in the remnants box and found this fabric 1I knew just what to do with it …

My daughter’s boyfriend recently celebrated a milestone birthday and I decided that as well as a boring ol’ voucher he’d get a cushion cover decorated with his initial with this travel themed fabric which suits his lifestyle very well.

I only had a little piece of the fabric – not quite enough to cut the letter in once piece so I drew the letter on bonding fabric and cut it up into random shapes (don’t forget if you use bonding fabric that you need to do everything back to front).

Then I used a readymade cushion cover from IKEA and ironed the shapes into place, I then blanket stitched around each piece.

2I was going to add pompoms to the corners but was advised that that may be a step too far, so I crocheted a fine trim all around the top edge of the cushion cover, and then popped in a pad and voila it was done. untitled

A nice fun project and if he hates it — he can turn in over and have a plain cover!  Luckily he’s too polite to have said anything other than thanks 🙂
Here it is in situ… 3

Thanks for reading
back soon
