A few months ago I made a cushion from a piece of vintage Star Wars bed sheet. Having never made a cushion cover before, I was pleased with the end result and liked how quickly it came together. Plus, C3PO, Darth Vader and the Death Star now grace our living room – who wouldn’t be happy with that?
Since then, I’ve been writing down all kinds of ideas for fun cushion covers and have managed to whip up a few like these bad boys:
Personally, I like a really over stuffed cushion so I use a big insert but because I’ve used a layer of cotton batting and backing fabric for the cushion fronts, a smaller insert would work and still give the cushion good shape. Plus, the covered zipper makes the back look as good as the front – bonus!
I’ve got a long list of ideas for these and I’m thinking I’ll take custom orders on my Etsy shop. What do you think? What would you put on a cushion?
