Cushions

I came across a link to this ebook when I was collecting ideas for gifts to make a few months ago. I liked lots of the projects in the book but this was the one I wanted to try first. I made these for my friend and I would love to make a pair for myself. I think they are probably love 'em or hate 'em and I've yet to hear from the friend who received them..... cushions 1

I used a red cotton for the front and a striped neutral cotton for the back. I splashed out on some wool felt from Etsy for the motif. A couple of sheets was enough and is so much nicer than craft felt. I found it really hard to find wool felt in craft shops but it was worth ordering this online. They make me smile every time I see them, Mr and Mrs Claus.
