* Small decorator cushions, the type you put onto a chair, couch and bed to add a burst of colour and design.
* Cushions with a flange. This is where the fabric extends out from the side seams. It can be done in a contrasting colour and softens the look of a cushion.
* Piped cushions. Where cord covered with material is sewn into the seam as a decorative detail. A self-piped cushion is where the cord is covered with the same material as the body of the cushion. Alternatively, you can choose a contrast material and use a different colour, texture or pattern to define the edge.
Why not embellish your cushions with trims, beads, tassels, buttons and fringes.
