Yesterday I managed to make 10 cushions for Christmas gifts. I have over time bought sample fabrics from curtain/upholstery shops, I then bought some cushion pads. I don't like inserting zips and I find using Velcro a little fiddly so I wasn't sure how to make the closures for the covers, I came across this idea in a magazine and used the buttons and ribbon that I bought in the Cloth House in London. I am really pleased with how they turned out and think I may keep some for using on our Ercol Daybed when it is finished. Of course this means that I shall have to make more for Christmas!
