is it cushion or pillow? i always get confused. anyway i made a cushion, yay! last year when the granny square craze started i jumped right on the bandwagon (yes i'm a bandwagon jumper) i didn't get very far, i made 3 1/2 and then moved onto something else, well i pulled them out yesterday, finished the fourth block and made a cushion

i used the tutorial from blue elephant stitches. i dived into my {overflowing} scrap box for this, and i have to say the scrappy look is starting to grow on me. it ended up pretty big at about 20inches and its oh so snuggly

ikea is amazing, i got the backing fabric from there and i think it suits it just perfectly. you will definetly be seeing more of this fabric.

and look i even added my own little label, its so adorable, my goal is to open an etsy shop and start doing craft fairs, so i got me some labels made from here.
i'm linking up with quilt storys fabric tuesday
