Cutie Clothes Cushion

I had had this idea for a while but was not sure if it would work or not.
I have brought a child's small t-shirt from the charity shop and turned it into a cushion!
The t-shirt was girly and pattern which was great to give the cushion some colour. I sewed up the bottom on the t-shirt and sewed up the inner part of the arms and stuffed it with filler. I wasn't sure whether to fill the arms also or leave them as they were. To stop all the stuffing coming out I stitched up the collar and buttoned shoulder.
The arms didn't look right without the stuffing so they too were stuffed.
I think this will be a great idea for someone with small children. We all know that children outgrow their clothes before they have had their full wear and with some children's clothes costing a lot it seems a shame to have to give them away or store them in a box.
Why not turn that cute top or dress into a cushion which they can treasure forever?
Please get in touch if you would like your children's clothes to be turned into cushions.

Well done, Klara! When you bought the lovely little T-shirt I could not quite follow your imagination - the finished product is sooo cute! Just the sort of comforter or sentimental memento one sometimes needs...x
