Cushions to Africa October 29, 2009 15:26
I was recently commissioned to make some very special gifts. A local company sponsors a South African woman called Fuziza. They have made a huge difference to this woman’s life, vastly improving is quality. They asked me to make some special gifts for her to commemorate their relationship.
The beaded bag bears the company logo and I choose the Swedish national colours (albeit the antique, muted versions of) for the cushion along with the building which is part of their logo. I’m really happy how they turned out and I really enjoyed making them for her. I thought a lot about her and her situation as I was making them. They will end up somewhere where I could never have imagined my cushions being before..
