new couch cushions

When I got our new couch, I really wanted some new cushions…or new cushion covers! The old ones were in reds and browns in keeping with our older look. Plus they sported the odd chewed corner thanks to a younger Romeo.

Now I wanted something brighter… some light blues, some pink, some yellow maybe?

Originally I planned to make all the new covers using my crazy quilting technique. Like this one where I used fabric scraps to create hot air balloons against a blue scrap backgound.

But you know what? I had some pretty fabrics I didn’t want to rip up. They made very pretty covers as they were.

I make cushion covers the easy way – like pillow covers – no ties, buttons or zips.

The pink one is my favourite. The fabric piece wasn’t wide enough to do the entire cover, so I had to improvise. I picked some complementary plain fabrics and added a couple of colour blocks. It worked great!

So, a quick change for a different look in the living room.

  1. I love your hot air balloon pillow cover. So bright and cheery. I really have to drag out my fabric. I could even make cards using this strip method. Way to go!!!
