Spreading the cushion love.

There has been some cushioning going on here up at Trash Towers recently.

Our dining room has been awash with thread, d/s bondawebby stuff, cutting mats, rotary cutters and some blue air. Did I mention there was zippage going on? And those bobbles??? This one has a new home to go to but I am quite chuffed as I made up the stitchy bit all by myself.

This was part of the birthday present sent to Missus Moog. It was also my first finish in the Loft Creations 'no Strings Attached' Challenge.

This was an upcycle/stashbusting number. CK's shirt was the backing, some spotty loveliness and a linen tea towel from stash. the wee mouse came from a picture book of the smalls.

And just as soon as I finish it I can look for a new home for it!


  1. Wowee you have been very busy indeed!
    I'm seriously loving the patchy one with the bobbly bits. Super cute!

  2. Wow! You have been busy! They are all fabby! Please feel free to send any spares in my direction!!! ;o)

    ps: unintentionally hilarious moment...i read the captions wrong and thought that CK's ex-shirt was the flowery teacuppy one...hilarious mental pictures of CK in serious business attire avec said habadastardly accessory ensued...just thought you might enjoy it, also! :) :) :)
