My brother made a throw away comment a few weeks ago that I couldn’t make him a Courteeners inspired cushion… challenge accepted!

So I saved a copy of the album cover and added a grid over the top. A couple of tweaks to sort out some edges and it’s finished. I used the intarsia method for the colour work and I think it looks good.

Sewn up using mattress stitch and then stuffed with 100% eco wool stuffing, rather than using a cushion inner!

I made a small swatch to wash and block to make sure the red didn’t bleed (it didn’t!)
