Reading Cushions..

by Kate on July 19, 2010

I have been wanting to make the kids some reading cushions for a while now so when I got my mitts on a letterhead panel from Aunty Cookie, my procrastination came to an end.

They are big without being too big (perfect for small heads) and are made entirely from fabric that I found in the scrap box.

These guys will be found in Issue 2 of Fat Quarterly, (which funnily enough is all about utilising scraps) and will be available from Tuesday 27th July.
