Practice pillows

I have ordered some fabric to make my partners cushion as I dont have enough of her chosen colours in my stash (or the right sort of prints for what I had in mind). It was fun shopping online for just the right shades. I was too impatient to wait till it arrives to start playing with making cushion covers so I had a practice run with one for me.

One of my plans for myself this year was to make some patio cushions for our new pergola and out door setting and I have had some fabric sitting in a pile that I purchased quite some time ago so what better time to get started on this so thats exactly what I have done.

 I plan to use greys and greens, and oranges and browns and stick to fresh modern prints.

This is just a simple one with a fussy cut centre on the print.  Sometimes the simple ones are the best, dont you agree. I am pleased with how it has turned out.

 I decided to use some of the outer border as a trim on the button hold band, I think its quite effective.


  1. I think you must be the queen of cushion making and they always look good. Looking forward to seeing more from this swap.
