Indecisive cushion

My Mum made a cushion for our bedroom.

It's from some fabric which I've had for ages. I won it in a blog giveaway from Melbomba's etsy shop. I'm not a seamstress so it was quite idiotic of me to enter it in the first place. Call me a giveaway junkie.

This is where the indecisiveness from the title comes in...
I couldn't decide what backing I should use for this fabric for cushions. So I decided that they shall back each other. I effectively have two cushions in one now. If I tire of green bellbirds one week, I can switch it to blue lilies with absolutely no effort.

Fabric designed by Mel Bombardiere can be found HERE. She has other colours and designs in her store, so be sure to check it out if you like her Scandinavian inspired designs.

  14. LOVE this!

    Have been debating myself whether to back two different fabrics from my Carla Miller Zig Zag fabrics together when I FINALLY get round to making more cushions.

  21. I love the cushion and was hoping at reading the title of the post 'indecisive cushion' and then scanning down and seeing the word 'giveaway' that you were going to have some sort of competition and give your most honest reader (i.e. me) your beautiful cushion.
