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.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
