Pleated Texture

I’m loving the variety of design ideas that can be explored with this twisted pleat texture! Have a look at my cushion.

I decided to go rainbow bright for a added optical illusion. I want to try out smaller, tighter pleats with one subtle colour and also experiment with the pleats running diagonal on the cushion.

As of right now I have spaces available in my textured cushion class. Come along and try this technique out yourself!

Cushions!

They are cuddly, supportive and look fantastic. No, not the guy/girl of your dreams…I’m talking cushions!

Cushions are a quick, easy and effective way to liven up a space with a splash of color and texture. They are also super easy to make and can provide you with endless opportunity to put your personal touch in the home. Start searching for cushion tutorials and you will see what I mean! In fact – check out our Pinterest page ‘Live it’ and let us do the searching for you.

But every once in a while the perfect cushion is right there in a shop, ready for you to buy. This is what happened to me not too long ago. I was meandering through Debenhams in City Centre when I came across these beautiful babies.

The paint tubes and brushes are a printed design, the pencils are chain stitch embroidery.

I instantly thought “COZY ROOM!!”. They are perfect for Inspiration Station. So look forward to a snuggle with these in the not too distant future.

(Even better they were on special – buy 2 get one free!! It was fate…)
