As you know from previous posts we have been redecorating our eldest son's now vacated bedroom with a seaside theme. So when the April issue of the Bustle and Sew magazine popped up in my inbox with a pattern for a cushion based on the song " All the nice girls love a sailor" well my travelling project was found :)
I used a piece of calico for the embroidery and then raided my son's wardrobe for the cushion fabric.
I should just say that I checked with him first before I ripped his shirts apart!
The embroidery was bordered with 2.5" strips top and bottom.
