Hi, first post here so i'm not sure if i'm putting this in the right place.

This is also my first time attempting anything like this save for a few sewing fads as a kid. Basically I had this old band shirt that decided to rip before I could really get any wear out of it. I tried sewing it up (or should I say, my mum did) but it just fell apart again so I got the idea to make it into a cool bed cushion! I was at first going to just cut it out and sew it onto an actual store bought cushion, but that seemed pointless and pricy. So I took apart another old plain white shirt, this is my end result!



And here's a photo of it on it's own. I'm pleased as the colours even match my other bed cushion Smiley



So yeah, that's my first ever reconstructed thing but i've been on this forum (under a different username which i have forgotten) for years, I just never got around to posting as I never had anything to post. Smiley
