I love retro stuff and I also love to recycle things when I can. When we recently created a sleep out for our oldest son (see sleepout here), I promised him I'd make him a recycled woollen blanket cushion with his choice of logo - and he chose a Space Invader!
I have a couple of woollen blankets that I want to use to make cushions out of, but I just couldn't bring myself to cut into them! I found one with some moth holes in it and cut out some unaffected pieces to use.
So much fun to make! I used red felt for this logo, and am already imagining what other designs I will make to zhuzh up the cushions in our own lounge.
Anyone could give this a go - and as I always say, anything that gets the males in my life appreciating 'handmade' is a bonus!!!
