Pillow Talk

I’ve mentioned before that I have a thing for textiles. Also, that I have a thing for cushions & their covers.
Oh, and let’s not forget ribbons and trims!

When it came time to make the cushions for the screened-in porch, I had a chance to indulge all three passions.  Because the pattern of the main upholstery fabric, a large-scale or “buffalo” gingham, is linear, the cushions were the place to get playful and add some whimsical, girly touches in order to balance the geometric pattern on the seat cushions and in the lines of the windows, the panelled walls, the floor and the rug. I made most of the cushion covers from scratch, but I also used one pre-made cushion cover from Ikea in a waffle-weave texture and just tarted it up a bit with a giant flower.

You could do it, too!
