Tote bag to cushion cover

I ordered a print from one of my absolute favourite artists, Neil Sanders, and when it arrived he'd included a tote bag with more of his excellent characters on it. I do use tote bags often, but they get dirty and ruined really fast, which I couldn't bear to happen to these guys!


So now it's a cushion cover instead - a really quick switch. I unstitched the strap, took the bag in 1/2" at each side so that it would measure the same as the cushion pad, 16" x 16", and then made four button holes for the top. Now I can look at Terrance, the big guys, and Peeps, the small guys, ALL THE TIME - which is exactly how often I want to look at them!
