Floor Cushions for Kids


I realised tonight that I never blogged about my kids' birthday floor cushions. 


I made Izzy's from a toddler quilt cover I made for her when she was one (maybe two?), but she's not used it for a couple of years as she went straight to a proper single bed. 


So I upcycled it! 


Ethan's is from a pair of curtains our neighbour gave us for Ethan's room, but they didn't match. So I upcycled them too :)


Ethan loves the handle on it! 

Made using this tutorial (really easy to follow!).


Perfect addition to their rooms and Izzy's book corner!

    1. Thanks Megan! The pink stripe was originally from a charity shop too! So it was an awesome find, as soon as I saw it I knew the colours would be perfect for my daughter's room.

    1. Unfortunately I don't have the math skill to do a tutorial involving circles! It's another bloggers tute. But I'm hoping to do a huge square one in the future!
