I really love making new things out of old. These are some little cushions I made a little while back out of vintage bits and pieces, like old pillow fabrics, children's clothing, etc. I painted the animals on with 3-dimensional fabric paint. If you've never tried it, puffy fabric paint is pretty darn fun. This would be a fun project for kids too because they could do the painting and then you could cut around it, sew it and stuff it - or let your kids do that too!
