Following on from my success at the cushion-making course I attended a couple of months ago, I’ve made another one! I’m finally getting to grips with my Janome so felt ready to tackle some home furnishings fabric.
As the last cushion was made for my daughter I decided to make something for my son. He loves his vehicles so I chose a brilliant fabric which features campervans in different shades and a co-ordinating spot print in rose.
There are lots of different ways to use the fabric for the cushion but I played it safe. I cut my fabric to fit the 18″ cushion from the campervan fabric and made a cover, letting the fabric speak for itself. I wanted to add a little something to make it special for my son so made a generous 10″ pocket. The toddler loves to read books at bedtime and I knew this pocket would appeal to him. It’s the perfect size for him to place his book and snuggle up in bed with.
There was plenty of fabric left over so I covered a cardboard letter E for the toddler’s bedroom too.
I was invited to take part in Terry’s Fabrics Cushion Challenge and provided with an 18″x18″ cushion filler and allowed to choose 2 x 0.5m fabrics from Terry’s Fabrics website to take part in the challenge.
