i came across a MASSIVE vintage hawaiian shirt at an op-shop the other week, and brought it home,..as any good bower-bird would!
it sat in my fabric box, taunting me with it's giant tent-like girth,..and i pondered its usefulness.
today, being a miserable mountain day, needed a little cheerful nudge,...and so,...holiday g&t in hand,...i set about making some cheerful, beachy cushions!
the fabric is bold and a little tacky,..
but it calms down once paired back with a subtle stripe.
and voila! a tack-o hawaiian shirt is now a pile-o cushions!
i think they would look great in a beach house,...casually thrown onto a daybed on a front porch,..or even in a little boy's bedroom.
don't you think?
