Cushion Making (again)

Every now again I like to change our cushions around and make
some new ones. They're a really easy way to cheer up our living room
and they are quick projects too. I made these two in spring, quite
awhile ago, and I fancied a bit of a change. So a few weekends back
when I had some free time I decided to get my sewing machine out
and make a couple of new cushions for our sofa.

I used Bunting in Gold by Cloud 9 Fabrics for this cushion.
I love the simple pattern and the colours and as it's flannel it's
super soft and so lovely to touch. I didn't know it was flannel
when I bought it from this shop but I'm glad it is because it's
 such a great material for cushion making. It's making snuggling 
in the sofa even nicer now that the days and nights are colder.

This one is a tea towel that I bought in the summer sale from
 this online shop. It's too lovely to use for wiping dishes but perfect
for making a cushion cover, although I had to use calico for the
back as there wasn't enough material for both sides.

These are just simple, envelope style cushion covers, 
no buttons or zips but I splashed out a bit on the duck feather
cushion pads. Oh my, they are so wonderfully squishy and comfy--
we love our new cushions A LOT!

So another happy cushion making hour for me with very
happy results. Fingers crossed I'll have many more!

I hope you're all keeping warm and dry this week.
Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!


  1. They are fantastic! What a super quick yet elegant way to sproose up your living room! X

  2. Your new cushions are so lovely! I like the idea of using a teatowel. I used a teatowel once myself to back a tapestry cushion that I had made, and it worked so well! xx

  3. They look so good, Marion. I love them all, but especially the one made with the tea towel. Very clever.

  4. Your cushions look lovely Marion on your sofa!

  5. I love your cushions. I'm on the lookout for some for our living room and can't find any I like! It never occurred to me to make some myself...doh!! :) Maybe that's the solution :)

  6. Your cushions are gorgeous!
