What do you call them? If its on your bed it’s a pillow, if its on the sofa it’s a cushion.
I had a few scraps of fabric left over from making my teenager his quilt, so while waiting to get it back from the LAQ I decided to make some cushions.
Now you may not be aware but I have a zip phobia and the thought of sewing a zip into a cushion was filling me with dread. I usually make envelope cushions, but the problem with them is that the sometimes gape open and it annoys me. A also didn’t want a zip at the top, I wanted it covered.
Its not wonky, I promise, its just where I was holding up the flap so I could show you!
So I searched high and low for the perfect zippered pillow tutorial. And WOW I found the perfect tutorial, that made putting a zip in easy peasy!

I still have a couple of more pillows to make for the Boy, I just need to buy some pillow forms and then I can share them with you.
I can see a lot of pillows in my future. Just think of all the different combinations of fabric you could use, Mine is a little plain, but hey its for a teenaged boy so it can’t bee to fancy!
