Heading to big school!
Following my page featuring a Hearts version for my daughter – I am now really excited to showcase another alternative. This one features Stars! It might be more suited to boys uniform.
I really wanted to sew something very special for my friend’s son, Ross… Something that he could always keep and treasure forever.
I looked at the market for school uniform keepsake cushions and realised I wanted to do something a little bit different. It was important to me that I incorporated all the special little tiny details of the fabrics of his school uniform. But more than that I wanted it to be a really lovely cushion in its own right. Something that looks really cool and then when you get close to it you realise it is made from the school uniform. I also wanted to make sure it included his name, the schools name and the dates and I decided to add this to the back so that the front area could be mostly displayed. I chose not to use the school logo too much and just added a snippet of this as a little token. I love the way it’s there but just subtle.
Here is a list of all the uniform items that I used:
⭐️ Royal Blue jumper
⭐️ White polo shirt with logo
⭐️ Gold & royal blue tie
⭐️ Summer grey shorts
⭐️ Winter grey trousers
The following is a list of all the little details that I incorporated:
🌿 Logo from jumper & polo shirt
🌿Jumper fabric (front and back)
🌿 Front & back fabric from tie
🌿 Fabric from grey shorts & trousers plus zipper
🌿 Buttons from polo shirt & trousers & shorts
I really hope that you like the result!
Of course each cushion that I make will be completely unique and special as it will incorporate uniform which is personal to the child. If you live locally you can drop the uniform items off. Otherwise You can post the uniform to me. Once the cushion is made the remaining uniform will be recycled unless you specifically want it returned to you.
I have also created a lovely Hearts version which may be more suited for girls. Please click here to view the details.
They would make really special gifts to treasure forever – great for grandparents to give.
The cushions are priced at £75 each (plus Special Delivery postage, or collect if you are local). They are double sided as shown and have several layers of interfacing to give a thick luxury feel. The cushion cover opens with a zipper at the base edge and the cushion pad is made up of organic cotton fabric which is further made with cotton produced through organic farming. The pad is filled with fine quality microfibre filling and is fully washable. The cover is careful sponge clean only.
If you wish to enquire about either version of this cushion then please save your uniform and feel free to get in touch with me. You can use this form to add your details for placing an order (there is a comments box included where you can add any particular requests).
Thank you for looking!
