Cuddly cushions and pillows

Posted by Elaine B on Tuesday Sep 30, 2014 Under Cushion, Gift, Japanese, Pampootie, Pillow

I’ll admit it. I have a thing for cushions. They’re just the thing to liven up a sofa and splash some colour around without going mad. I love making them too. Here are a few of my recent makes. Subtle and sumptuous green and duck egg blue silks. Pretty fabulous!
