Wow!!!! Cushions.......what words describe this wonderful home accessories?
Comfortable, Cosy, Round, Soft, Squishy, Cuddly, Floral, Abstract, Small, Big, elongated, helpful, Snuggly, Different, Gorgeous, Learning, Pretty, Square, Elegant, Pure Bliss, Matching.........these are just a few and ones that can be found within my site as my cushion investigations begins.
These soft furnishings at times give much needed support and much wanted comfort. Also they also reflect your personality, your mood, make a statement or
reflect your passion.
How!! do I hear you say?...A room or more to the point your room can be.
There are lots of lovely ones available in the shops and online but have you ever found that you just can't seem to find what you are looking for. Either the colour, design or style doesn't reflect you or the look you are trying to make.
Buying one is fast and great for getting instant results. You could save time if you need to get one quickly.
Just think of what you could create if you had a bespoke designer one instead. Bespoke because you made it and designer because you have designed it to your own specifications....so what could be better?
Never tackled sewing before?.. then these beauties are a great way to learn and that could lead to bigger things.
The 3 "F" Factors
Choosing the fabric will it be washable cotton or luxurious silk, hard wearing linen or soft satin?
Fillings: Selecting the filling whether it is sturdy foam blocks, Kapok or softer polyester. A natural filling like down and feathers or man-made polystyrene beads.
Fastenings: Keep it all together with the fastenings such as zips, poppers or Velcro. Make your own ties or use buttons to add a feature.
Different or Unique:
Not all are JUST cushions some have hidden secrets, such as a quilt hidden in a
pillow, a little home for a fallen tooth or a reminder of a special occasion. Others have an important job to do at special occasions or around the house.
There can be so many questions on and I will try to give you the information to help you make your choices as well as giving you information of the different types that are used.
Welcome to the world of cushion making and a lot more besides.
