Cushions from toddlers T-shirts


These cushions are going to travel to Australia !  A Greek woman with three little children wants to thank her family in Australia, who sent her a lot of lovely T-shirts. Her kids loved the shirts. Such a nice gesture from the family and a lovely idea to return the shirts in this way!


It was a bit of a hassle to make the tops because all the T-shirt fabric is from a different quality. When I tried to sew around the car, the sewing foot was sticking to it!!! I used a piece of cotton fabric on top of the print to guide my foot. I am pleased, though, with the end result.


 I managed to avoid the fish eyes while sewing. I don't really like to sew T-shirt fabric, it gets so easy wobbly. That's why there is a small border around the prints, to steady the edges.

Dearest Ada,
That is a very unique way of showing gratitude! That way they got used twice and in a very practical way.
You did very well, as you mentioned, not easy to 'marry' different types of fabric into one project.
Hugs and blessings,
Mariette
