The magazines at the doctors have had some good stuff in them lately. She often catches me snapping the mag pages on my phone. At least the days of coughing and tearing are over.
There was a rather nice typographic style cushion. It cost $85 which is fair enough if you have more spare dosh than me.
Anyhow, I thought I'd show you a nice cheap alternative.
If you have a silkscreen and squeegee handy, which not everyone does, I know, then you just have the cost of the blank cushion cover. I got mine from Pillowtalk for $6.95. You really couldn't get the fabric and zip for that. The squeegee and screen are not expensive from any art shop and then you have them ready for the ensuing printing frenzy you will undoubtably begin.
1. Cut out the number of choice. Mine's a five because I have five offspring and a girlfriend is turning five decades so I thought she'd like one too. It's also just a nice, fat, curly graphic. If you google your number and go to images, you'll find a lots of designs, then you print and photocopy to the desired size.
3. Spoon on some fabric paint or just acrylic would do really. You can add some fabric emulsion to it or just never wash it if you have really, really clean children and flying pigs at your place.
4. Spread the paint through the screen with a couple of pulls of the squeegee on a 45 degree angle.
5. Lift it up, et voila, you have a typo cushion of choice for next to nix.
It's all a bit beige but you get the idea.
Some people are also turning five years in a few months which is possibly preferable to five decades.
