Simple Buttoned Cushion


This is a really simple way to make some great cushions for your house.

I simply cut 2 squares of fabric half an inch smaller than the cushion size you want to use (this gives the cushion that nice firm and plump look).

Sew around all 4 sides - leaving a gap of about 1/2 the 4th side open. This will give you the space to insert the cushion insert. Then either hand sew or machine sew the seam shut.

Finally add a simple fabric covered button to the centre of either side in a contrasting colour. 

Happy sewing!

Vintage Dresden Cushion


About 3 years ago I was browsing in the old Material Obsession shop in Hunters Hill and I found a lovely vintage Dresden plate block.

Not sure what I would do with it, but knowing I had to have it I bought it and subsequently filed it away with all my other sewing bits and bobs. 

Well I found it again recently and decided it was best made into a cushion so I could enjoy it every day.

I appliqued it by hand onto this lovely simple blue and white stripe background.

I made up the cushion this weekend and I'm really pleased with how it turned out - I used a cute pink multi-spot I've had in my stash for years  - it looks so cute!
