Homemade Cloth Cushions

There's been a lot of crafting going on here lately and I managed to make the two Cloth Fabric cushions for our bed without too much difficulty considering I've done nothing like this for about 25 years!!!

Well, I did sew one side the wrong way which needed unpicking and then some of the ribbon got caught up and that needed unpicking and re-sewing! But other than that, it went okay. Needless to say, daughter #1 helped with some of the sewing while I measured, cut, pinned and did the final sew.

I used offcuts of the lampshade fabric and then bits I'd bought as remnants.

For the backing I used Cloth Cream Hemp fabric and cream ribbon (I didn't want to attempt sewing zips!).

I think I could get into this cushion-making lark!


  1. They look fantastic! You have done a great job. Cloth's designs are so complimentary, aren't they? Can I ask you where you got your remnants?

  2. Fabulous! Beautiful fabrics and I love the cream ribbon on the back - a lot nicer than a zip anyway.

  3. Oh, if only I knew how to sew! I'd be right there with ya!

  4. They look great Jane. You have been very crafty lately and it's all looking good. xx

  5. Lovely cushions Jane, I love your fabric choices. I think you might be nesting in readiness for your new house. Love your work!!


Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you ..
