Football cushion

My brother wanted his own cushion to go alongside all his girlfriend's home decor. I printed out a number of copies of the logo and cut out all the separate pieces in paper, and then into felt. I used patchwork stitch on my machine to applique the logo together.

A robot and an accidental blackbird

This was my first attempt at something almost resembling applique (although I still used the straight stitch a few millimetres in from the edge rather than applique stitch). Alex told me he wanted a robot with a crow on his head.  I was pleased with this effort until he told me that the yellow beak meant he was a blackbird. I'm still pleased with it though. Material, buttons, zip and felt came from Our Patterned Hand on Broadway Market.
