Back from break....



Hi everyone, I'm back blogging again after a break.......
We're still here, safe and well.
Cricket (pup) has grown bigger since you saw her last time on the blog. She is helping me show you something I whipped up recently.
This denim shirt was amongst some shirts that Mr Roo no longer wanted and was destined for the op-shop.
I decided to 'upcycle' the shirt and make him a 'blokey' cushion.
A very easy cushion to make!
An idea for a boy's present.

 
Mr Roo was very pleased indeed!
Cheers,
Sandi x

What a great idea. No wonder he was pleased. Cricket is still very cute. How is she handling the puppy phase?

Oh wow Sandi she really has grown!!!!! I miss my BC so very much. They really intertwine themselves into our lives don't they? Especially BC's!! Love the cushion, even has a pocket for him to keep the remote in lol!

Welcome back Sandi!! that pillow is such a great idea!! my dog is a little larger than a small child, but I bet I could do something similar with 2 shirts. Love this idea.
