My Creative Space

As well as basting my vintage boys quilt, I have been sewing an easy upcycled cushion cover for a dear friend's birthday. Inspired by this lovely lady, I used some linen from a thrifted tablecloth.
I have also added some vintage floral and a thrifted shirt for the backing. I do love easy.




I stitched a little motif onto the tag from the same tablecloth used in the cushion and some pretty wrapping completes the job, I think! Wrapping the present is one of my favourite parts!



I'm linking in with 'My Creative Space'.

oh now you have really inspired me. I managed to thrift some bags of mixed linen off cuts the other day, large enough for cushions and/or bags. Your idea for the backing is so cool. Love it ! and such pretty packaging...i love using old patterns for wrapping too, with lots of bold coloured ribbon!
