Stanley Dog Cushion

One of the teacher's at work is due to go on maternity leave next week.
She was S's teacher in Year 2 and during that time we had a few conversations about our shared love of all things produced by Ms Kidston.
When an email was sent out to us all a couple of weeks ago announcing a baby shower to be held just before half term I knew I wanted to make a little something but seeing as my craft skills are quite basic I wasn't sure what. 
With the help of a CK booklet, which was given away in the Telegraph newspaper a couple of years ago, I decided to use the Stanley pattern and stitch him to a cushion cover.
I bought the cushion and it's cover from Store21 and used a selection of felt and fabrics from my limited craft supplies to bring him to life.
For my first attempt I am absolutely delighted with the way he looks. 
I hope he'll be loved in his new home.

I made a Stanley cushion for someone a couple of years ago and I remember thinking it was a really fun project, I enjoyed stitching it a great deal. Yours is great, it will be a wonderful gift. x
