Scrappy cushion covers Trip Around The World By Lizzy

So after finishing my Scrappy Trip Around The World Quilt i found i had a fair few spare bits & pieces left over so it makes sense to make them up into cushion covers to go along with it.

Look at all these!

I used the same method as with the quilt, my cushion pads are 14×14″ so I needed to have 9 rows across by 9 rows down.

I decided as its precious fabric from my lovely jelly roll id only make it into the front & use some curtain fabric I’d had in my stash for ages for back

I wanted the same quilted finish as with the quilt so cut a backing from an up cycled charity shop bargain sheet & a square of wadding. Made up a sandwich of the 3 & pinned

This I quilts on the diagonal of each small square ending up with a nice textured panel

I used the curtain fabric & cut two pieces to over lap each other on the back envelope fashion, it’s important that these covers are easily washed as no doubt my dogs will claim them! Zips are a fuss to put in too…

I’m pleased with the result & have enough scraps too make another 3 covers.

  1. Awesome! I love the way you used your scraps. I have tons of tiny pieces left over from what I’m working on now. Thanks for the idea. 🙂

    Those fabrics are simply delicious, and the colors are particularly outstanding at this time of the year. The cushion covers look fab on the leather sofa -very nicely done!

    Really nice! So bright and cheery on a dark winter day. Love using up the leftovers, too.

  4. They look great! I love your envelope back! (Anything to avoid a zipper!!!!)

  5. Just want to say hi. Thanks for the follow. I find your blog interesting and inspiring. My blog is new and I just start blogging decently about craft. Quilting is one of my future goal but now can only do some simple one because of having 2 young kids. But, I have always stocked up a lot of fabric, hubby is not really too happy about my hobby to stock up stuff, haha.

  6. Beautiful and what a great way to use all the little scraps left over from other projects! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi! Thanks v much for following my blog and liking my post. As I’ve only just started blogging I don’t really know what I’m doing so it’s nice to know people are reading it. I really like your cushions. It’s funny because I’ve just made a bag based on the trip around the world, hopefully I’ll post about it tonight, but that might be being a bit hopeful! Will be back soon to have another look 🙂

    • We started beginning of January, there’s lots of other projects we need to blog about & it felt daunting too start with…never sure if anyone would read what we write, but the response had been lovely & encourages us too share. If nothing else it’s a kind of diary for ourselves to see what we have done each week. Best of luck & happy blogging x
