So far sew good

Having more fun with my new sewing machine…someone near and dear will be getting this quilted hot-water bottle for their birthday today.

Meanwhile I never quite got around to posting my upcycled child’s shirt cushion…it’s for my little boy who adores birds and chicks of all kinds.

His old checked shirt had a few tears so I used the good bits. Although there are a few unwashable paint splashes, I also thought it was worth using the buttons and buttonholes on the shirt front on the back of my cushion.

He loves it! At least now my friends and family can expect the occasional hand-stitched gift to add some variety among the knitted ones 😉
