I am really on the repair/upcycling challenge this month!
As with my younger daughter’s panda hoodie, my older daughter had a grown out of hoodie with a cool motif on it.
This time I decided to marry it with a cushion she already had – a lovely checked number which, believe it or not used to be a pair of shorts I actually wore. (I do worry about my younger self sometimes – and sometimes I admire my ability not to care what anyone else thought…)
The cushion had originally been made in a hurry, but now I had time to recut the fabric so it would be a slightly squarer cushion. I cut out the motif and I was ready to go:
I applied the motif using the same powder as I had used to repair my trousers and then I stitched by hand with a running stitch, to make sure it stays on:
All that was left to do was stitch up the cushion, replace the cushion pad and, because I was feeling lazy I stitched up the bottom on the machine as well:
And here he is complete:
