Superhero Cushion

Finally, my first sewing project finished! Yes, as predicted it did take longer than I had hoped but I got there! The cushion cover is simple enough, I prefer to use an envelope opening for most of my cushions as you don't have to worry about fasteners and is safer when making cushions for kids. I am calling this one my Superhero Cushion, made for my friend's new little bubba, Oliver. I hadn't actually asked what colours his new nursery would be but coincidentally I chose correctly! You can't go wrong with red and blue for a boy, can you?

My first foray into hand embroidery. I used a simple backstitch for his name and a tacking stitch to fasten the red felt star. I was quite pleased with the 'naive' result!
