Marmee bought me and my sister a matching pair when I was 11ish (don't exactly remember). Mine was in more or less constant use until now 18(ish) years later! Now it was getting very shabby in the middle and I was feeling like I wasn't doing right by it leaving it in that state.
Then, my sewing machine shows up (long story, will note it later). So out come the scissors and, deep breath, I get cutting. And so far to show for it I have these yummy cuddly cushion covers.
I'm also planning hanging stuffed hearts, maybe with some embroidery. Oh and a hot water bottle cover...
