i'm really pleased with these, i made them for a swap and they are my partners favourite bit!



They are actually made from offcuts of curtain (ALWAYS buy curtains too long, then trim = free material)...  The first tree was traced and then the rest were drawn freehand.  They close like pillow cases (with a flap at the back).  The back is a softer fabric (it was the lining) to make them a bit more cuddly, and the closure has contrast brown stitching.

Finally, I like the fact the covers are all slightly different sizes - I did this when I made my first cushions and it means you end up with one firmer pillow (for being lazy and lying on), plus squashy ones for cuddling!  Let me know what you guys think ...

Absolutely wonderful! I love tree motifs.  Great stitching. Must have taken quite awhile!

I love them, and what a good idea about having one firmer than the other.

What a wonderful use of leftover fabric!!!  They came out stunning.  Love the trees!!!  Off white?  Ivory?  Lovely.  Would be my favorite too.
