Birthday Cushions

Added Feb 3, 2009

London, United K...






For my mum’s 60th birthday my brothers and I wanted to give her something special so each of us designed a cushion for her.
I embroidered mine with moustaches (don’t ask me why) and they have a matching back and piping and the little cutie’s filled with lavender. I also ordered some labels on the internet with the date of her birthday on it.

Material Notes

linen, cotton, embroidery thread, zipper, piping cord and dried lavender

    I am a huge fan of Hercule Poirot, and his mustaches-love your pillows!

    Wish I had a new adjective to tell you how much I love those moustache pillows! They are ________!!! I can almost guarantee you’ve started a global moustache craze. I know I’m going to copy you! (And hey, I love anything filled with lavender). Your mom must have flipped over these sweet gifts.

    I absolutely love your moustaches!!!! It’s such a great design, your mum will be really chuffed when she get’s these! (She must be pretty cool herself to inspire gifts like these!)
