An Amazing Cushion!!

26th October 2013

I am at last up to date with washing, ironing and shopping after my week away!

While I was in London I started another baby blanket in lovely Debbie Bliss Yarn, so soft and great to knit. The design is a simple basket weave which looks the same on both sides and I knit  a moss stitch border so that I don't have lots of border sewing at the end!!!

Now for the amazing cushion. 

In a previous post I told you about going to Cloth House in Soho for some fabric for my very talented sister to make a cushion for a colleague who was retiring. She based her design on this Louis Vuitton case....

..fabric, cushion pad, satin tape, marker, rivets and letter template.

The plan was to mark the design on the fabric with the special marker but it just disappeared into the fabric!! Eventually the design and monogram were cut out of the gold fabric and stuck on...

..tapes for 'case' edges were hand stitched in place...

..the corners and handle were riveted and stitched..

..and after about 14 hours and very sore fingers!!!!


I was SO impressed and hope the recipient loved it!

I have another project to do over the next couple of days but cannot share yet as it is a surprise!!

I will share at a later date....

Have a good weekend.


  1. I love the cushion as it is a one off, completely unique and I hope the recipient was truly amazed. The blanket looks so cosy, some baby will be very lucky to be wrapped in this x

  2. I love the cushion because it is unique and I hope the recipient appreciates the work that went into making it. The baby blanket looks real cosy, a lucky baby to be wrapped in it x

  3. That cushion is certainly unique!

  4. What a talented set of fingers! I love the bag / pillow. I'm sure it will be a treasured gift x
