Mario cushion

Things seem to have been busy around here! But not too much sewing going on, more birthday party prep. Our boy turned 7 yesterday and we threw a Mario party for 14 kids! 

We had some craft and party games to entertain them! There was Mario bingo, pin the moustache on Mario, 4 corners, pop the balloons. The prizes for all the games were gold coins, which went down very well!

Pin the moustache on Mario

Some themed decorations:

And child decorations too!

No party is complete without biscuits and cake!

I did manage a bit of sewing this month though. One of the birthday presents was a Mario cushion. The day before the birthday I was finishing the cushion pad and the buttons had to wait til the following day, I was that pushed for time!

I had to borrow one of the blocks from the Mario quilt as I just knew I would not have time to sew another one! I quilted an all over stippling using a cream thread.

and I did some appliqué on the back:

It has beans inside as the boy liked his old bean-filled cushion. He seemed pretty happy with this new one when he saw it. Seeing this finished makes me want to get on and finish the quilt now, to match it. 

I met my May goal! Yay! Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes
