Handmade-59‘C’ cushion is for…Carter

I made a gift for friends who have a new baby son. This photo was taken part way through the process.

The piping is made from leftover scraps of fabric joined together. I call it my “crazy piping”! The cushion fabric is grey denim and the appliqued letter “C” is calico. Often I will machine stitch around the letter, but this time I am hand stitching with a quilting thread to add more texture.

I added a back with a zipper closure and the task was complete. All that is left is to deliver the gift!

(If any of you reading this, can work out who it is for, “Mum’s” the word. Don’t want to spoil the surprise.)
