A Monthly Make 2011 January

Amazingly even amongst the chaos of the kitchen refurbishment I still managed to complete one item this month. Well technically I suppose it's two items as I made two of the same thing!!!!
Jack was invited to a surprise birthday party by the mum's of two of his classmates and unbelievably the children managed to keep it a secret from the birthday girls for over a week....
Jack wanted me to make them a birthday gift and asked for personalised cushions, they had to be exactly the same as the girls are BFF (best friends forever for those of you that weren't sure!)
I have come to the conclusion that I work much better under pressure as there wasn't much time to make these and I made up the pattern as I went along.....

I'm really pleased with the outcome especially using cross stitch for the names and now have orders from Rachel, Jack and Tomas to make something similar for them.....
