A lot of things and yet no things spring to mind when I look at this cushion. It weighs about 4kg. I bet you didn’t guess that.
I don’t know what to make of this cushion. I made it, but I don’t know if I like it, and I definitely don’t not like it enough to throw it away, or even give it away. So I’m stuck with it, and I don’t know what to do with it.
For this reason I’ve decided to create a room in my multi-million dollar imaginary mansion (don’t we all have one of those?) especially for the mis-matched and mis-informed items that I accumulate. This cushion will feature in this room.
There’s a lot of up-cycling, recycling and down-cycling in this cushion. You see, I kinda now wish I had kept the stripy denim as the original pair of jeans (down-cycle). They were comfy and my kinda weird. The grey jeans didn’t fit, they lost their elasticity and kept falling down (up-cycle). Then there’s the cushion’s stuffing and the reason it weighs about 4kg: It’s full of cut up off-cuts from past sewing projects and old clothes (re-cycling). We could unzip it and I could talk you through each scrap! But I like you so I won’t do that.
Well, after writing all of this I’m now having a moment when I like this cushion. I wonder how long it will last! 😀
Stay environmentally conscious! 🙂
