I bought some new couches recently and the 4 small cushions I had now no longer suffice for my lounge suite that can sit 8 people. So I got creative with my cushions and their styles to avoid having plain old square cushions.
For this one I made up the pattern myself. Basically I cut 2 very long, about 50cm wide strips of fabric and gathered them on one side to force them to turn in. Then I attached them onto a side piece. The middles didnt meet how I wanted them to so I made up 2 little circles of fabric to patch onto the middle.
Its a very big cushion, good for sitting on the floor with, but it also looks like a large grey peppermint lolly
Some kind of grey polyester like sateen. Im not sure because I bought the fabric about 5 years ago and just got a chance to use it
