He did it!
First thing this morning we, well he, got on with finishing the Creeper cushion. I pulled a piece of duck cloth for a bit of fun speed stitching, attaching it to a piece of batting for lining. Then a simple envelope back was prepared, and hemmed by the youngster.
We layered everything, and there was guided rotary cutting to square it all up; so with stitch 11, a straight-zig-zag combo, the whole lot was stitched together.
Then it was time to turn through and reveal...
Oh what a happy boy!!!
Luckily I had an cushion pad the exact right size, so it could be a proper finish...
And because even he is no stranger to what sells, he did his best Alex V impression...
He's my #auriboy !!

I enjoyed every minute, and the beaming smile he has been sporting all day has made it doubly worthwhile.
