Last year I decided to save the crumbs. I'm not sure why. I knew they were too small to ever be sewn together with something (you know fabric confetti) so maybe I was just trying to see what a year's worth of confetti looked like. Well, I got three bags full and there they sat in the closet until this week when I pulled the bags out and decided to make a cushion. I must admit it is a very lumpy cushion and not one that anyone is going to want to sit on. And granted the fluff and stuff gravitates to one side or the other. BUT... Lemi thinks this is a very comforting cushion to relax on! It is bumpy and squishy enough that it fluffs up around her and makes for a warm seat I guess. So I'm glad I saved the stuff and am making my furry friend happy.
And here is more of the fluff.
And here is a cushion in progress made of an old towel sewn around three sides with an opening for the inside fluff. (I didn't even velcro it or put a zipper in etc. This cushion is going to be a "rip the seam open and add more fluff if needed" type of cushion."
And here is Lemi occupying the crumb and fluff filled cushion. If she'd get off of it for a few minutes I might even make a cover out of an old T-shirt so that I don't have to wash the whole cushion (I can see that turning into a lopsided mess!) but so far she has claimed it as her own so it doesn't have a cover yet.
So much for my innovation and sewing skills.
