What do you do when you have a nice summer

blouse that does not fit you anymore ! ??

Why you .. repurpose it of course !!

I hadn`t worn this as it was tight on my arms

so i thought of a way to reuse it ..

And came up with this lined cushion cover !!

I cut the main body as it had ruching stitching

and the buttons on the front act as the closure

at the front - so not messing about with a zip !!

So easy to do !! ;o) Just cut to size of the cushion pad you

have then sew all 4 sides up ...

Mine fits an Ikea " Irma " pad which is 14 " square ...

I also lined it with white cotton material from a

pillow case i didn`t use ;o)

I then made a fabric flower from circles . some

folded into quarters and sewed it on , then added

a couple of hand felted leaves...

Back view .. with some ruched detail already on the blouse

Inside view where i lined it .. it needed

a lining as the blouse material was thin ..

So i`m offering this to purchase ;o)

OOAK neutral dotty flower lined cushion cover

14 " square and will fit an "irma " Ikea

cushion pad - an excuse to go visit the place maybe ! ? lol

All cotton apart from linen in the flower i made and i would

handwash it warm .

Price includes shipping £ 8.00

Hope everyone has a great weekend !!

You have outdone yourself, Carolyn, with such creativity. I love the look with the bottons. So cute!

OMG! That is so cool Caz! I love it and wish I could do something like that. Thanks for "teaching" us how to make it. I think the flower is fabulous! xoxo R...

I think I like this better as a cushion than a blouse!!! :)
