Front view- This cushion was created out of 2 dresses and a sweatshirt that belonged to a dear boy’s mum who tragically died a year ago from cancer. He provided me with the clothes, ones that reminded him of his mum, of holidays shared and other happy memories.
Back view- With all my keepsake orders I begin by de-constructing the garments or fabrics. I experiment with different designs and when happy with my decision I re-construct, creating either a buddy, Teeny the dog, scarf or cushion. With this order I wanted some elements of all 3 fabrics to co-exist; so the dress materials on the back are also present on the front and if you look closely you can just see the fabrics in the top left & right corner . The Animal sweatshirt from the front had a printed logo and I liked the way it looked when placed in the centre where the 2 dress fabrics joined on the back of the cushion.
