Modular DIY Map Cushions

The Shape of String

Inspired by map decor she saw on Apartment Therapy, Ruth made these twelve appliqued map cushions for her children. If the project looks on par with one of Hercules' labors, it came pretty close. Ruth calls it a 'what-on-earth-was-I-thinking-when-I-started-this' project.

But she persevered and finished all twelve. Take a look at the detail below.

They look fantastic and clearly her kids have found plenty of ways to put them to use: for jumping, wrestling, napping and, of course, they are a puzzle to solve.

Well done, Ruth!
