Gingerbread Cushion



Hi everyone! I just wanted to show you my latest finish -
the 'Gingerbread Cushion' designed by Ann Ferguson from Quiltopia
(she has patterns available in her shop).
So easy to make using a Clover yo-yo maker (big size) and a pack of five inch charm squares.
A great portable project.





I am so pleased with the way it turned out and will definitely make more of these cushions.

Happy stitching,
Sandi x

Yo-yos are so much fun. Your cushion is perfect! I would like to make one of these cushions using scraps of my daughter's favourite clothing.

Hello, browsing through blogdom and your lovely cushion caught my eye - I too recently made a yo-yo cushion, slightly different design, but aren't they such fun to make and a great way to make use of lots of little bits of material. Lovely to meet you!
