Organising Chaos

trying to bring beauty and order into a busy life



I might have mentioned (once or twice before) that I like up-cycling and updating things that I have around the house. DIY silhouette cushions - OrganisingChaosBlog
A while ago I bought 4 super soft amazing cushions that go perfectly well with the scheme that I have going on in my sitting room. Ok, calling it a scheme might be a step to far (or few miles) but you know what I mean.

After I added some felt pom-poms, which by the way are highly addictive, I wanted to add something else. After much thought, I decided to add some pink felt animal silhouettes to keep with the soft felt thing (notice I didn’t say scheme??) going on.

Once I decided on the silhouette I got them printed and cut them out and then I used some bias binding to adhere them to the cushion.

They looked pretty adorable as they were but I wanted to add something else – more was more in this project for sure!. I added these covered buttons as noses to the silhouettes and I they look even cuter now. Poppy silhouette on a cushion - OrganisingChaosBlog
I love the combination of textures and colors.
I am very in love with these cushions and I think we are going to be fighting with them. I might make more silhouette cushions. More animals? Maybe a parrot? Stay tuned!

  1. I haven’t got into the felt pompom craze yet (why I don’t know…) but these cushions look adorable! These might have to be my introduction to felt pompom land 🙂
