So this is a comfy post as it’s all about cushions! All of these are cushion covers. Some I bought inserts for and some I just used an old cushion I already had. The inserts weren’t that expensive but were flimsy, but you could always stick 2 in if you wanted to pad it out a bit.
This is my first, and so far only, attempt with a sewing machine. I bought a load of remnant fabrics and loved this pattern so much I decided to make a cushion out of it. I was very pleased with the result and there wasn’t even that much swearing involved! Not bad for a rookie even if I do say so myself!
This is a knitted patchwork one that I did. I knitted the whole alphabet (the plain colour ones), and had no idea what to do with them. I then realised that they fit an old cushion that I had 3×3, so decided that’s what I would do. I broke up the letters with some picture and pattern blocks.
This last one was done using Tunisian Crochet. I know that ideally both sides would be the same, but the idea came about thinking what to do with some practise pieces that I had, and I didn’t have enough of the colours to do both sides the same. But hey I’m still pretty chuffed that I made something 🙂
So there you have it 4 cushions in 4 different ways. You can never have too many cushions!! I hope you like them 🙂
