Cushion Covers

I recently had the urge to redecorate our guest bedroom so I decided to sew some cushion covers to bring some colour in the room. I used the vintage sheets that I have been hoarding and made three covers. Two of them were quilted using this tutorial from Fussy Cut.

This one was made from an old pillowcase that fits the width of my pillow form. All I had to do was to shorten the length and add some plastic snaps. To jazz it up, I added some yoyo flowers, a huge button, and embroidered the word "hello".

So there you go! A bedroom makeover without spending anything. Looking at the pillows just makes me happy.  

Bye for now.
