A Robot Cushion

Happy Friday!  I have been plugging away at my plus blocks and watching way too much Olympics (that women's hockey game yesterday was quite something! I'll be up early Sunday watching our boys play) so I have little to show for my last two weeks of sewing.

But I do have one finish,  Someone is going to a birthday party and I thought this birthday boy would love to have his own personalized robot cushion.


This required a bit more effort than my usual patchwork  - I worked several evenings on it - but I enjoyed the change.  The embroidery is free motion on the machine, and the appliqués are secured with a tiny zigzag stitch.  It was a bit of a pain to change the thread every time I switched colours, but it was well worth the few extra minutes.

I still love making cushions, but I think the next one will have to be simple squares...
