Folksy Friday

For ages now I've been keeping my eye out for the perfect fabric to make cushion covers. Because we live in a rented house with neutral walls there's no real colour scheme so I really don't know where to start! I do know that I'd like four different patterns - maybe a log cabin, a nine patch, some embroidery and applique - the possibilities are endless! So for now I'm just waiting for a fabric to jump out at me.

But until then, here are a selection of beautiful handmade cushions available on Folksy:

This pretty little floral patchwork cushion is made by House Proud Cindy. I can just imagine this snuggled on a kitchen bench in a country cottage!

This polka dot patchwork cushion is part of Mia Design's range of children's handmade items.

This cute little applique bird cushion is one of several bird themed items made by Needles and Buttons.

A Lucky Child has a beautiful range of kids quilts and cushions, including this vibrant pillow.

And finally this beautiful log cabin patchwork cushion is made by Sew Gorgeous. I love these colours together and pretty floral fabrics.

So that's another week done and dusted then. I have good food and good company to look forward to this weekend as my Mum and Dad arrived safely yesterday. And lots of knitting too!
