Tufted Cushion

Steps:2
Solid-colored pillows look more distinctive when embellished with pretty pom-poms or buttons. Adding them to both sides of a cushion will prevent the thread from straining the fabric and tearing. The tufting will keep the fill in the insert from shifting, so the pillow will rarely need to be fluffed.
Materials
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Buttons or pom-poms
  • Store-bought pillow cover with insert
  • Upholstery thread
  • Long upholstery needle

Materials
  • Abalone-shell or pink mother-of-pearl buttons
  • Beading string, cut to 40 inches
  • Crimp bead
  • Needle-nose pliers
