My baby turned 13 this week - another milestone! I printed some photos onto the inkjet fabric sheets, found a motif from a purchased cushion that was no longer functioning, and decided to add a couple of cool iron on patches and some fabric for the borders - yes, another birthday cushion ...... sorry about the colour on this - oops!
I unpicked some of her old Size 7 jeans for the cushion back.
I used applique foot Twenty Three (the number two character has gone into early retirement on this computer ...!) to applique the sequinned fairy ......
I stitched together the unpicked jean pieces to try to get some kind of flat squarish shape - I did two rows of topstitching to represent proper jean seams and I kept the raw edges visible.
I squared off the back of cushion shape and added some bleached denim to fill in the blanks.
here is the completed cushion top, and of course, I used Goldies Cushion Inserts (70cm),
I use invisible zippers in the side seam.
She loved it! Happy Birthday my dear little Sweet Pea!
