This is another old tshirt belonging to my Grammie that I was asked to turn into a cushion. After fighting the piping on the We Are Siamese If You Please cushion, I wasn’t going to go down that road again. I still wanted something to make it more interesting, though, so I settled on rickrack.
I’d have liked some more space between the print and the seams, but Grammie was tiny and so her shirts don’t leave a lot of room around a big print like this. I’m still happy with it.
There was no print on the back of the shirt, so the cushion back is just plain yellow.
