Cushions are often considered to be the ideal ‘beginner’ project, as they can be really quick and easy to make. But if you love making cushions and are looking for a wider range of designs or something more challenging, we’ve found just the book for you!
Making Cushions & Pillows is the perfect resource for anyone who loves making cushions to decorate their home. Whether you enjoy sewing, knitting, crochet or embroidery, you’ll find a wide range of designs with cushions to suit every style. With 60 cushions to make, there’s everything from contemporary monochrome designs and pretty stitched patterns to classic knitting techniques and quirky vintage style.
Make traditional cable knitted cushions, create motifs with intarsia or use crochet techniques to add texture and decorate your designs.
