Starfruit cushions

Aren’t these cushions fun? Assembling them feels almost like doing a puzzle. I found this project at Matching Pegs. Give it a try! The pattern is made from a bunch of squares, so you can easily change the size by changing the size of the squares. Interesting buttons can really make the pillow special!

The pattern

This fun project can be found at Matching Pegs. 

The cushion in the intro photo was a little more difficult for me to make than the cushion shown at the bottom of this post because the fabric frayed really easily. If you’re using a “shreddy” fabric, I recommend using a seam allowance larger than the 1/4″ used here. My “gold” pillow (shown at bottom) worked fine with a 1/4″ seam allowance.
