i have wanted a union jack cushion for some time now,...
or even better,
a vintage union jack flag to make into a cushion.
however, i keep on baulking at spending upwards of $100 on a cushion,..and nearly $500 on a flag.
time to think outside the box.
yesterday i started mucking around with fabric paint.
you can get some lovely screen printing paint for as little as $9 per bottle.
then look online for a union jack to copy.
mask up some calico with tape.
and paint colour at a time, leaving the fabric to dry in between colours.
i think it is going to look fabulous as a cushion!
stay tuned for the results.
