Make your own recycled shirt cushion cover

Make your own recycled shirt cushion cover

I used the scraps from the rest of the shirt fabric to make little appliqué birds and an elephant for some plain cushions that I made in a contrasting fabric. To make these you can buy bondaweb from any haberdashery store. It comes with instructions. You draw you design on the smooth side and cut roughly round it leaving spare bondaweb around your design. Iron this on the wrong side of your fabric. Cut neatly round your shape and then peel away the bondaweb. Place the appliqué on your cushion front (before making up the cushion) and press following the instructions. I stitched round the edge of the appliqué using a zig zag stitch to make it stand out.
