Personalised Wedding Cushion

Today i thought I'd share a recent commission i have just finished.  A customer who has purchase a few items off my Facebook Page contacted me recently and asked if could make her a personalised wedding cushion with a VW camper van on.  I loved making it as i don't get as much time to do applique projects as I'd like.  On this occasion i decided to do it slightly different and found a handy tip that i will always use from now on.  Instead of appliqueing the cut pieces onto the cushion face i decided to heat n bond the pieces first and fix them in place then applique over them.  I'm so glad i did it made the process so much easier as the pieces didn't move around and were easier to cut out as well as they were a bit more sturdy.  Anyway what do you think of the end result?......
