Cushion Swap

So I finished my cushion for Punky & Me's Cushion Swap, yay! then like Lauren from Lozalicious suffered some severe cushion swap performance anxiety: my simple cushion seemed a little plain Jane compared to the beauties some people have created: perhaps to make myself feel better I shall describe the style of cushion as 'understated simplicity'?!

I wanted to make a snuggly colourful winter cushion with a men's shirt back and totally from the stash: I had a knitted strip made with a lovely variegated yarn which I sandwiched between some dusky pink corduroy, et volia!  Made for Jacinta who turned out to be a fellow corduroy fan!
Cushion Swap: Shirt Back
Men's shirt back: cant wait to make more cushion backs like this!

Snuggly winter cushion with knitted front.

Received my amazing cushion in the post today: I LOVE it!!
Made by knitgirl66 from all pre-loved fabrics: and I totally love the green brown orange 70s hues: just my thing!! Currently residing on my tan recliner looking very much at home! Thank you knitgirl66: it is gorgeous!!

  1. That cushion back is so cool (and coordinated)! Did you really include pens in the pocket? And I love the one you received too.
