Stuffed Shirts and other cushions

I'm always on the look out for new ways to reuse, recycle, upcycle, repurpose, whatever you want to call it stuff I find at charity shops and jumble sales. I particularly like fabric and other textiles, as well as small receptacles. I recently got inspired to make cushion covers from men's shirts, entitling the series 'Stuffed Shirts', as city gents are sometimes that, and the cushions are also stuffed shirts in a way!
I think they nicely compliment my more intricate collage applique cushion covers.
