Finished Object :: Custom Cushion

Last week it was Tony’s niece’s birthday. Because it is so close to Christmas, we always struggle a bit finding a present for her. Does she really need more sparkly pencils or cute erasers? Maybe she does, she’s only ten after all. ;-)

However, for this year I had a fun idea. A few months ago, Tony’s parents visited and Niece came with them so she could play with Blake. She loves Blake, but who doesn’t?! :-D

While she was here, she asked if she could draw on our dry-erase board, and of course she could! That drawing is still on the board in the kitchen and that is what is printed on that cushion cover. I thought it was such a fun drawing and I think this kind of creativity should be really seen and celebrated.

So I took a picture of the drawing and had it printed on Spoonflower and then sewed it into a cushion cover. I am really happy with how it turned out, and it sounds like she really liked it, yay!

The back is a random log cabin-ish patchwork. I’m not a big fan of “if it’s for a girl, it has to be pink”, but after seeing her new bedroom at Christmas, it was clear that pink would be the way to go. With a bit of orange to give it a bit of zing. The polar bear fabric in the middle is my own design, that I had printed on Spoonflower.

    What a great idea! It is not always easy to find presents, but this is really a very unique and fun idea. I am sure she loves it.
