So I get this phone call from my son, just the day before the delivery,
you know how the story goes,
'mum, how much would it cost for you to make a cushion for my girlfriends sister, its her birthday next week?'
tell me I'm not the only one that gets those kind of requests? Please!
so said recipient is 1 years old, girly girl, like pink, ... yeah I get the picture!
Something pretty and girly!
so I pulled a few fabrics,
I'd had some time to think about what I was going to do
but I did have a plan ...
it didn't take long to get all the cutting done
and in no time at all, I was stitching down and quilting all in one go
a bit more quilting around the outside,
because you can never have too much quilting in my very humble opinion!
a quick zip insertion, and a cushion was born
and what better than 'girl on a swing' in pink by Aneela Hoey for the perfect back!
I had a lovely text and phone call to say how much this gift was loved!
I call that a successful make,
I love it when a plan comes together!
