I have a really good friend whose birthday is tomorrow. Over the weekend, I decided to make him a present. Ages ago, I bought some fabric with cameos of famous composers on it, as my friend loves classical music, and is a fantastic pianist. I decided to make a cushion for him, but pimp it up a little to personalise it. I embroidered a silhouette of my friend dressed in old-timey clothes, then sewed the embroidery onto the fabric.Here is the finished product:

and a close up of the embroidery of him:

I was kinda surprised by how good it turned out - ie it actually looks a little bit like him!
I love piping on cushions, so I used some musical notes fabric I had for piping:

here he is among the crew:

I gotta admit, I just love how it turned out. I'll be giving it to him tomorrow - can't wait to see his reaction  Grin
