Cushions




Two matching cushions....which I made and then accidentally sold!
Not to worry, I have more fabric and will be making more today for me to keep.
Just wont be putting pictures on facebook in case I accidentally sell those too ;)
Easy peasy :)
For a 41cm insert. Just cut 4 x 9" squares, 2 x 17 1/2" by 13" for the envelope back, sew up the squares, hem 1 long side on both backing pieces (I folded over a 1/2" then 1/2" again), lay down right sides together, sew, trim corners and ta-da! Easy peasy cushion cover!

How did you go? Did you make a cushion and find your sewing mojo?
I did! Woohoo!! Oh and I even made a skirt! xox

Edit : Sorry! My bad! Cushion is 41cm. Went to spotty, got more cushions and when I got home, too big! So 41cm or size 16.

Yes, i made a cushion top, an Australian flag cushion for my eldest daughter using Amy Bulter fabrics. Just finishing off the stars and making some design decisions with said daughter. Have to trip down to Spotlight (interstate drive) for a big juicy cushion insert. Fun project, love Posie

Gorgeous cushions, I really love the birdie cushions. I can see why someone would "purposefully" buy them and cause you to "accidentally' sell them. :-)

Lovely cushions. While I didn't make cushions on Saturday I had a sewathon with a friend and we made it past midnight! I got lots of blocks done, or almost there.

"Accidently sold" is pretty funny Bianca. I hope that you have many many accidental (and of course deliberate!) sales this year!

Oh, and the cushions are gorgeous.
