The first cushion of the New Year is for “JAWS”!

After a very lazy month and a few false starts, I popped a cushion down to the wonderful Sheila Clayton in Southampton yesterday. Sheila spends her days doing all she can for animal welfare throughout the world. The cushion is to be raffled over the coming months for the Japan Animal Welfare Society.

After making festive cushions for Christmas it took a while to work out what to make for Sheila. One of the wedding dresses that had come from my mum and dads wedding dress shop, Barclays of Havant, many years ago was a wonderful heavy cream satin. Taking care to line it and stabilise it, I think it’s pretty cool! Hopefully there’s enough fabric for a couple more!
