The Sunflower Floor Cushion
I pinned the tutorial for this floor cushion by Living with Punks a long time ago and had a sudden realisation that the Sunflowers fabric I had printed that was too big, would be perfect for one of these! My new fabric should arrive any day now, then I can get on to making my bag!
The 54" width of the Spoonflower canvas let me cut the side panel in one piece which was great! I was hoping to use some pom pom trim around the edge, but couldn't find any in yellow or black, so went for the old school twisted braid instead. I used about 750g of hobby fill to stuff it, which I got for free thanks to a coupon! :) I would say the background of the fabric looks a little more blue in these pictures than in real life. In the flesh, it's more of a teal colour. The fabric is available here on Spoonflower.
Roman loves the cushion and calls it 'Mama's flower cushion'. His little legs are a bit too short to sit on it comfortably, but that doesn't seem to bother him. He loves rolling it down the hall and using it as a coffee table.
