Gift for Nanna

When my grandmother first got her wheelchair, I asked if she'd like to go out with me to the fabric store (that used to be around the corner) and pick up a little surprise.

I got a foam insert and told her to pick any fabric she wanted and I'd turn it into a new cushion for her wheelchair. She picked out this nursery-rhyme, country, old style drawing kind of fabric. Pretty out there, but she loved it.

(Sorry for the bad pic... my dad took the photos for me. Bless him for trying!)

Somehow I lost this fabric and cushion for the longest time, until just a few weeks ago. Turns out instead of putting it in my scrap fabric bin (which was LOADED with useless scraps since I was a kid), I had put it in my off season clothing bin instead. I had to donate most of what was in there because it either didn't fit, or was just really not my style anymore. No wonder I hadn't touched the box in eons!

So as soon as I found it, I whipped up the cushion and showed it to my Nanna. She had completely forgotten about it as well, but loved the cushion anyway. Looks comfy!


  1. That looks great. How very sweet of you.

  2. It's so nice that this helpful-yet-lovely gift involved the participation of you and your grandma. So thoughtful of you!
