new cushions- made with useless fabric

I keep on meaning to mention that I recently bit the bullet and joined Twitter. Here's the link to my tweets:


This is my 3rd project in a row for the master bedroom! I made some covers for the cushions on my bed:

I used the extra fabric after hemming the linen Ikea curtains in the room. And I also used the tie-backs!

For the first one, I made the cushion cover, then added on the tie-back by making the ruffled band on the lower half. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out!

I wanted the second one to coordinate without being too matchy! So I used the 2nd piece of tie-back fabric to sew the band onto the upper part. Then I used some scrap fabric to make a rosette, then I added it on using my glue gun. (These are more decorative and hopefully won't need to be washed as often.) I also love how this one turned out!

They both took so little time to make & it felt good to make pretty things using that leftover fabric that I would have otherwise thrown away! :)
