My friend asked me to make these cushions for him. They're all internet and social-media themed. I started with the Twitter bird one as it seemed like it was going to be the most straightforward. The cushion construction is very simple because a) I don't have a zipper foot for my sewing machine and b) I already knew a couple of these would be stress-inducingly long-winded without the added hassle of a zip.

The first and simplest - the Twitter logo:

The Facebook 'F' (this was a bit more difficult and I managed to sew the back pieces on backwards initially!):

The epic Fail Whale cushion (this took me the best part of 8 hours and a steep learning curve with some fusible webbing):

Google 'G' (I had the colours the right way round all the way through on this one, then stuck the G on the wrong way round. And that fusible webbing doesn't budge!):

Special surprise Nyan Cat cushion (my friend loves the Nyan Cat and thought the little bag I made a while back was great Cheesy so even though he only asked me for four cushions, I've snuck this one in too. Well, it was either going to be this or a Totoro one...I cheated a bit on this one and glued the felt down, I don't have enough time to hand stitch things this weekend!):

I hope you like them Smiley

They look so awesome.

I hope your friend likes them.

Thanks guys! Epic Fail Whale was truly epic (right down to lasercutting the little orange birds so that they were all exactly the same). I'll leave it a while before I attempt that one again! However now this has given me a taste for cushion making - as I mentioned above the cushion itself is really simple and easy to make so I can go all out on the decoration. Basically anyone who knows me is quite likely to receive a cushion for their birthday now! Cheesy
