Handmade Cushions

Handmade Cushions

Cushions will have more impact on the look and feel of your scheme than you may realise. Whether scattered on a sofa for extra comfort, dressing up a bed or adding an accent to an armchair, these soft, pillowy forms are a staple accessory in almost every room – even hallways and bathrooms occasionally house a cushioned seat. They are, however, more than simply a dressing tool; cushions add comfort and support, too

how To measure a cushion cover

To measure a cushion cover, remove the cushion pad inside, lay the cover flat, then, in the case of a square or rectangular cushion, measure along the length and width of the cover. For round cushion covers, measure across from one side to the other to find the diameter. 

Expert tip: always choose a cushion pad that’s the same size or one size bigger than your cushion cover to ensure extra plumpness and comfort. Never go for a cushion pad smaller than your cover as you’ll end up with empty corners where there’s no filling – overstuffed looks and feels much better
