Of all of the fab shows on TV at the moment, Strictly Come Dancing has got to be one of our favourites!
You can imagine how excited we were when one of the researchers of the show got in touch with us at Bags of Love, to see if we could help them create something special for their chat show, It Takes Two. Cue excited squeal from us!
The lovely Sam told us that they had seen our rather special Huge Cushion of Love and they thought it would be perfect for the show. They wanted the cushions to show images of top choreographer Karen Hardy and Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood and be big enough and fun enough to make a real impression on the two, when they saw them.
We got to work immediately and created 4 of our Huge Cushions of Love, two of them featuring Karen Hardy and two featuring Craig Revel Horwood. Like all of our products, we make our heart cushions by hand, printing the photos on deep into the fabric and then filling them and sewing them, to create gorgeous and unique products. Topped off with an adorable silver heart zip of course.
The cushions were needed quite speedily so once everything was confirmed, we finished creating them, packed them up and sent them on their way to the team at Strictly Come Dancing. Sam got in touch to tell us that they all loved them and to make sure we watch the show.
Well of course, we never miss an episode of Strictly or It Takes Two, so on Monday evening, we tuned in and were so excited when we saw the Karen cushions propped up proudly on the Strictly sofa. We were even more thrilled when we saw how much Karen loved her cushions! And when she exclaimed “Who is responsible for these?” We all jumped up shouting “US!!”
Make sure you stay tuned and keep watching Strictly Come Dancing It Takes Two and keep an eye out for our gorgeous Huge Cushions of Love. If you fancy creating one for yourself (they don’t have to feature famous dancers) then click here and we will show you how to start designing and creating yours.
