I recently completed the crafted cushion cover swap and my partner had pinned a bunting cushion cover on her pinterest, which being a Jubilee year, I thought was rather appropriate to make. I had so much fun making one for my partner, that I made two more. Without further ado, I present the peek-a-boo bunting cushion covers.

Here is my swap cushion cover:


My partner liked strong, autumnal colours and I found this brilliant fabric that looked like a stain glass window for the reverse. The "peek-a-boo" was a different fabric with a sewing theme. I "hid" a zip on the reverse using black bias tape.

Then I was visiting a friend in the US, so I thought that I could make here a bunting pillow as a thank you present.


This one I make a feature of the zipper tape and the peek-a-boo was a nautical themed, which went nice with the beach hut fabric and blue colour ways I have been hording.

So today, I finally finished my pillow, using fat quarters that I have squirrelled away over the years.


I used a gardening fabric for the peek-a-boo, and this was the first time I did a proper "hidden" zip.  By proper, I mean not using bias tape. I didn't do any machine applique to the reverse of mine.

All the covers fit an 18" square pad, and I added a (rather rustic) patchwork border around the original 14.5" centre panel. You can find a link to the tutorial that I sourced for the panel here.

I would love to hear all your thought and comments. And of course, to see any bunting pillows that you have made. Peek-a-boo bunting is seriously addictive to make!

Happy Crafting!

Oh, wow, those are all amazing, especially the top one Wink I love flip-flapping the bunting. It's a beautiful cover. I really like the reverse of the nautical one too! They're all lovely!

Thank you Calabaza, I wonder what it is about the first one you like...? Grin

I love the nautical one, it's more my colour palette (and theme), but I really like back fabric in mine so had to choose "warm" fabrics from my stash to suit. I plan on using the rest of those fabric to make proper bunting as well....
