A little while ago I had the Idea to sew some cushions for my two chairs I have out in the garden. It turned out, that once finished, I decided to keep them indoor because I liked them so much and I was afraid they would get nasty and old too fast :-) Meanwhile they have been used A LOT and you can tell by looking at them. So that´s the only picture I have of them just after I finished to sew them. Thank God I took it so I can post it here for you! I will surely make some more of them since they are so comfortable and a very nice interior eyecacher!!

I made the pattern myself by measuring the seating area of the chairs they were meant for and decided of a 12cm height. They are filled with a foam in the size I wanted the cushion to be. I have inserted a rope at the edges which I thought would look very nice. The fabric is from the Designer Amy Butler. For those of you who don´t know her wonderful prints I recommend to have a look at her website. OMG I looooove her designs sooooo much that I literally get lost everytime I am looking through her fabrics. The colours, the pattens, the flowers. What can I say: it just makes me HAPPY! The two fabrics I used are from the collection “daisy chain”, which is limited now since it is quite a while ago. But you can still get them if you are lucky in fabric shops where they sell Amy Butler. The names are: Pressed Flowers / Turquoise AB39I and Clematis / Grey AB4. I also own a book of hers where she presents her living style. It was a huge insipiration for me when I was decorating my home.

    Decorating the interior of your home gives you a perfect opportunity to express your personality. It also allows you to put forth your hobbies; your interest in art, different cultures, and furniture. Home decorating can be done in different styles, each having its own appeal, simplicity as well as complexity. Wall arts, paintings like http://bluediamondgypsy.com/jimi-hendrix-posters/, wall colors, furniture all things should be according to the interior theme selected.
