After the fun of making the mermaid cushion cover for Cléo . . . I pulled out this little cross stitched piece.
This photo was taken in June of last year. A cute little robot, kit by Permin. The kit gave all the necessary fabric to make this into a mobile phone pouch, but I wasn’t too keen on that idea. So, what did I do? Patchwork around, and another cushion cover, of course!
I had such fun with this, making use of several orphan 5” squares and then cutting into the blue oval print fabric to pull things together. I’ve made this for my great nephew (not sure if he’s 7 or 8 but I’m sure a cushion will come in handy to brighten up his bedroom).
And, on the back . . . the same velvety fabric I used for the mermaid, with the same blue button fastening.
I’m now off to pick up my crochet hook, as I’ve promised an amigurumi wolf for my second great nephew!
