Messy scrap cushion

Following on from the messy scrap patches I made the other week, I used them to make a squishy cushion as a present for a friend. In the end, I used some cream and pink spotty stripes to break up the patches. As an aside, check out the lovely Melin Tregwynt Welsh tapestry blanket I had for my birthday. It is so cosy! patchwork cushion cocojudeI used my yellow retro sheet from the back (I swear it is never ending!)yellow cushion back cocojudeI did have some issues while making it – I felt a bit rough and ended up made way more mistakes than usual. I had to unpick and remeasure a few times (partly because the cushion pad was so squishy it was hard to work out exactly what size the cover needed to be).

I still have some pieces of fabric left, including this lovely blue one which looks a bit like seagulls, and this beige version of my favourite black bird fabric.

I have also had the idea of appliquéing beach hut-looking houses onto it as well – kind of Brighton themed! I have some Britten Hus fabric from IKEA, to cut the houses out from. The link is to a blogger who used the fabric, as it seems IKEA don’t do it any more, but I do love the idea on the blog!
