Make My Week #21 - Lego Man Cushion

Another six-year-old birthday and another personalised cushion.
This little guy is a LEGO lover and so I thought I'd make him a little cushion with the iconic LEGO man on it.

I free-hand copied it and then stitched it on in felt.
Pretty pleased with it and I think the birthday boy was too.

Looks great! Just wondering, what are you using to stuff these cushions? Are you buying inners? or poly fill??

Very cool and looks perfectly neat and professionally done, i think you are about to make a small boys day x

I was pretty stoked to think of a lego present that wasn't actually lego - my boys liked it too!

Miriam said...

I usually buy an inner from spotlight for about $5 I think it actually works out cheaper than polyfill and it's already the right shape, easier to work with

Miriam said...

Thanks - I do try to be neater when I am making stuff for another person! :o)

This is gorgeous Miriam! I wondered what the lego man was going to turn into when I spied you sewing him a few posts back. Now I know! I so love this idea.
