Twist frill cushion
This is a great cushion for a dressing room, boudoir, or feminine bedroom. It’s made from the left-over pieces of fabric and the pattern can be adapted for lengths and remnants of any size.
The pdf includes: fabric suggestions; cutting dimensions; simple and precise instructions along with our tips, guides and watchpoints.
Fabrics: we used silk taffeta for this one although any silks will work as well, as the scrunched edges will either stay in place or flop slightly, depending on the hand of the fabric. Woollens can be used with equal panache for a less feminine cushion, or the materials can be mixed. The first idea for this design was to use up the odd strips from curtain lengths, but we have since used many other offcuts.
Level: a keen beginner can make this one for their own use, but it needs an experienced hand if it’s for a client.
Holding the fabrics in position needs some experience, but the design is random, so it could be partially sewn by hand.
