Personalised cushion cover for 30cm cushion inner. The cover can have any name across the middle and a hand embroidered 'Love From' tag in the bottom corner.

The cover is made in an envelope style so can be easily removed and washed.

I have made this cushion cover for my nephew to give to his Nanny for Christmas ☺
