Cushions, Cushions, Cushions!

I think I can safely say that throw cushions are my favourite accessory. If I see pretty fabric, my first thought is of what a lovely cushion it would make. If I have a little spending money and I'm in a home decor shop, my eyes immediately find the cushions. If I want to make some changes in a room, the first things I think of are... you guessed it, throw cushions. I don't exactly know why I love cushions so much, but I have a few ideas...

They can add a ton of texture and colour to a room.

They are an accessory that can make a big difference if you are looking to make some changes, but don't want to break the bank! 

Lastly, they are easy to sew yourself and can be made from all sorts of different things. Like button-up shirts...

Pretty cloth napkins...

And old sweaters...

Oh, and let's not forget that they are just simply comfy and cozy! How can I refuse such a multi-functional and delightful little object?

Anyway, I suppose you'll now have no trouble guessing what my plans are for a lovely piece of linen that I recently purchased from this Etsy shop...

I ordered the blue floral and I can't wait to get it in the mail- not that I, in any way, need another throw cushion! :)

  3. So true, pillows are such a great way to freshen up the look of a room, for very little cost. I can't wait to see how your pillows turn out...such gorgeous fabric!

  4. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pillows ~ can't have enough of them and so easy to change the look of a room ;-)

  5. I am crazy about cushions too. In fact, a friend asked me the other day if I'd ever stop making them for our living room! I think she had visions of not being able to get in at the door becasue there were so many!! I love the way they make sofas look so welcoming and snuggly. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with your lovely fabric.

    I'm your new follower!


  6. Would you say that cushions are your one weakness? They are certainly mine!!
    Love Helen
