Or  cushions in the UK .

A pad or bag filled with soft stuffing, used as a comfortable support, generally for back, head or for seating; pillows are the  most essential home accessory for comfort and decoration.

They can be bought in many standard shapes and sizes, or made in any shape or size; they are present in most rooms in one capacity or another – perhaps as a single cushion for effect, an assorted a pile for comfort, or a collection just because…

Pillow covers can made from very simple fabrics in the simplest manner or  from exquisite fabrics embellished as elaborately as a couture gown. Perhaps one of the attractions of pillows is that they can be easily made and there si always rotor for one more..

They are both useful and manageable and  take so little fabric that an extravagant stunning design becomes an affordable investment; stunning hand worked pieces or worn antique cloths bought from markets across the globe find a home; fat quarters and ends of rolls; remnants don’t break the bank; every scrap can be used in, patchwork or applique ; the limited space allows time for elaborate works of quilting or embroidery; pillows for any destination make great presents.

Pillow covers might be a simple square or it could be piped, frilled, bordered, fringed, or more, and the closures too can be decorative or left plain  – as you wish.
