DIY Cute Cushion Cover



I had been looking online for some cute cushions. Finally I gave up and decided to make my own.

I used a piece of fabric which was already almost the perfect size and had been hemmed too from another project.  I folded it into an envelope pattern over a cushion I currently had but wasn't using. (Please excuse the creases.) 

After pinning in place, I found a cute piece of drop cloth from my stash to attack to the front.  Then I also found these cute drop cloth and canvas flowers I had again made for a previous project and pinned them to the front.

After sewing on the drop cloth patch, I sewed up all the sides.  Then hand sewed on the flowers.  And now I have a a cushion that I love and it cost me nothing to make.

I will definitely be making some more. :)

  1. Those pillows turned out so cute! I don't know about you--but I have so much more satisfaction when I make something myself rather than pay someone else to make it. :)

  6. Wow, I love your new pillows. I especially like the one with the burlap flowers. Making your own is so much better and usually cheaper.
