I made this cushion as a Christmas present for my friend out of a second hand pillow case. Making it a bit smaller but keeping the existing buttons. Then I made this simple embroidery pattern of a butterfly from a photo. Stuffing yo can by from lots of craft shops but maybe yo cold also use stuffing from an old cushion you don’t want. Easy! And I’m so glad she actually liked it too :)  So next time you think you don’t have time to make a gift for someone, think again. It’s feels so much better to give a present that you’ve put some genuine effort into. Don’t you think?
