As far as I am concerned - there is no such thing as TOO many cushions. A single cushion can completely change the whole look of a room and in no time turn it from bland to grand!
I know some people find them an absolute nuisance - but not me. I come from a long line of
Mum was an Over-Cushioner. Her cushioning style was rather random and somewhat uncoordinated. Multiple colours and styles - whatever took her fancy really. She had a thing for anything with either a cat or dog motif and over the years collected some rather interesting(?) examples.
Nan was also an Over-Cushioner and being the fantastic seamstress she was - used to create the most gorgeous hand smocked round satin creations with large covered buttons in the centre. She would use a huge darning needle to pierce the cushion and attach the buttons to each side. Her cushions were a work of art.
Which leads me to today......
Now, I'm not entirely sure what lead me to my crazy cushion making frenzy this afternoon!
One minute I was sorting through my fabric stash.......
And the next, I was cutting out layers and layers of yellow and blue co-ordinated fabric and sewing up a storm!
Buttons, bobble trim, zig-zag - pins flying everywhere......
I was like a woman possessed.
So here we have it.
A whole bunch of cute little blue and yellow creations - perfect for some Spring time cushion zhushing!
Super easy to make and cost me hardly anything (apart from the inserts)
If anyone is interested - I would be happy to post a little tutorial.
Only problem now........
Where to put them all!
