Whether you call them cushions, pillows or throw pillows, I'm thrilled with how this set turned out. Although they appear to be the same shape as a pillow you might sleep on, in reality, these cushions are much smaller, and are destined to sit on a lounge (sofa).
Cushions, even if they have piped edges, are not hard to make, so who knows why they were a long time in the making. My eldest son chose and paid for the fabric. He also decided on the combination of fabrics for the covers and piping. All I had to do was make them.
Sometimes I just procrastinate with certain projects, and this was one of them. I took so long, that they were a total surprise to my son at Christmas. He'd forgotten all about them!
If you're scared of piping, don't be. If I'd had more time I would have taken photos to show you. Instead, I've found some good tutorials to help you...
- How to Make and Attach Piping for Pillows
- Add Piping to a Pillow
- How to Make and Use Piping
- How to Make and Sew Your Own Piping
The hidden zipper tutorial is one of those, it's so simple why didn't I think of it tutorials.
I was so rushed making the cushions that I didn't even write down measurements. Check out Differences in Cushion Inserts to help with sizing information.
My son's cushions will be joining the 240+ projects in the Pillows & Cushions link party here at Threading My Way.
I still have a few more Christmas presents to show you - some with tutorials. Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks.
