I FELT The Need To Make This..............

A close up of the cushion

Hello everyone so over the weekend I decided to dive right out of my comfort zone and make this little tweet cushion purely out of felt I stitched two a4 sized pieces of brown felt together leaving a small gap so i could turn it in the right way and stuff it but with what i didn't have any proper filling so i had to think outside the box and opted for cotton wool balls lol and whats more funny it actually worked.I did decorate it first though using dies which actually cut beautifully in my bigshot.I then added some gems to give it a sparkle and a more luxury feel.The dies I used were Tim Holtz birdcage die,heartfelt creations posies and a cuttle bug mother die but i only used the little butterfly from that one.
would love to know what you all think.
Here are the challengs I am entering my cushin into:

Colour create-pink,brown,cream,white
Creatilicious-Anything goes

I didn't realize it was a Big Shot that you use......funny that. I love the colours you used for your cushion. Old tights I think they used in days gone by (my childhood) or old socks, clean of course.
