Zen Moment

Zen moment
Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled
I love these Gum Drop Cushions!!! The pattern and fabrics are by Amy Butler. I only had enough fabric for either one 24" cushion or two 18" cushions. I knew my two girls would want one each for movie and game nights so I made two. I had no idea they would be so popular! No sooner had I finished the knot to close the hole and they were bouncing all over them. The Gum Drop cushions look adorable stacked on top of each other in a corner or placed side by side against the wall.
The Sew Spoiled twist, I made them with 4 yards of different Nigella Home Decor fabrics and 8 bags of 20 oz. poly-fil. I bought 10 bags but only used 8. For Halloween, I might make some cute slipcovers that look like pumpkins:).
If you have this pattern, dust it off and try it out. If you don't have it, you can find it anywhere online. There are 5 Etsy shops currently carrying this pattern.
Happy Sewing!
