Put a pom pom on it.
If there’s such a thing as Cushion Addicts Anonymous, then I probably need to find my local chapter because I feel that this love getting out of hand. From round velvet ones, to floor ones, to mud cloth ones… You name it; I’ve tried them. For me, it’s that cushions can change the look and feel of a room, without you having to invest too much time or energy. You can, therefore, change them as often as you like to update your space, without having to throw out the sofa. In this latest iteration of ‘Geneva gets knee deep in cushions’ we decided to go for a more simple twist on a plain cushion – by adding an oh so easy pom pom trim. This project is perfect for those of you that want to add some detail to your living room or bedroom but not go over the top, and I have to say it’s also the perfect dorm room or rental update. Enjoy!
For this project, we went with a sewing method, but you could just as easily attached the trim with fabric glue if you wanted a quicker or more skills friendly option.
There are two ways to sew the trims onto the cushions: You can hand sew it with needle and thread by hand, so that the other side of the cushion edge will not have any visible stitches, but admittedly this is more time consuming.
Sewing it with a sewing machine will end up with visible stitches on the other side of the cushion though, so might not suit those of you who are perfections... But for the rest of us it will do.
These you can do in any colour obviously, but we could suggest you try to match the cushion colour with the trim colour, or so two contrasting colours.
By the way, you’ve probably noticed I have a penchant for decorating with hats… What can I say, I like to keep my other addiction on display 🙂
