idea-list #9

pinned from here
This weeks idea-list is somewhat different in that all of the inspirational pictures I chose from Pinterest are variations on the same item - a wonderful felt cushion - from in fact the same source, the Telahmarie - Heart Felt Design etsy store. I was just so impressed with all of the designs I couldn't help myself but share them all with you :) Avatar Aang and Appa (above - Avatar The Last Airbender) are easily my favourite designs! And they look so cuddly, Appa in particular.

Link (above - The Legend of Zelda) I think has to be my second favourite. The cushion is just so so full of character, even though its all simple shapes and block colours it works perfectly.

Other favourites are also R2-D2 (top - Star Wars), Calcifer (middle - Howls Moving Castle) and Loki (bottom - Thor) but all the cushions on offer in the shop are really so beautifully made.

I've been um-ing and ah-ing about making a Cactuar cushion (Final Fantasy) for a while now, and seeing these made so well has inspired me to get on it, most likely for B's Christmas present. Incidentally I can't wait to show you later this week what I crocheted him for his birthday, he loved it!!

I think I am also inspired to use these designs as inspiration to make my own, but of course I would never sell them as my own! An Appa cushions would be amazing to cuddle up with ....

  2. Dave has a problem with cushions, he thinks they're pointless. Pretty sure he'd find space for the Link one though xx
