One evening after work, I pulled out some heavy denim (from Rathdowne Remnants) and a few felted jumpers that matched our floor rug, with the intention of making one side of each cushion in wool and the other in denim. But when I cut the arms off the jumpers, I was inspired in a different direction altogether.
I fell in love with the juxtposition of the different textures and the contrast of the denim blue. It broke up the matchy-matchiness of the wool cushions and the wool rug. The circles of felted-jumper-arm suddenly looked like the remnants of shells, clinging to a rocky shore.
I especially liked that they were REALLY QUICK to make.
To date, they haven't impressed any prospective house buyers enough to buy the house, but I quite like them.
