Dog Cushion

Our friend's daughter turned 7 today, Happy Birthday Alisha. Her party was held at the local Fun Factory, great for the kids and great for the mums as no mess at home (and there wedges are so yum!)

I made Alisha a cushion for her bed, Cate picked out the fabrics and helped me with the ironing. Made entirely from my stash, I used to make heaps of kids party presents, it's great when there lovingly recieved.

Alisha has a small dog called Waggs so the blue dog fabric is perfect. The centre has been quilted cross hatching half inch apart on the diagonal and I have stitched in the ditch around the sashings. Using the white with tiny spots for the backing as well, cushion size 18 insert (proberly could of gone with size 20).

We also bought her a set of buzz controllers with the Ace Race game for the PS2, these are so fun. Late party on a scorching 40+ degrees Sunday afternoon = take away dinner so win win all round!
