Quilted Couch Pillows.

I've been on an insane crafting rampage, and over the past few weeks I made new cushions for my terribly uncomfortable and ugly Ikea couch.

All the fabric used for the covers is re-used or vintage. The ticking is from an antique store in upstate NY, the wide striped fabric from an old sweatshirt, and the gray fabric reused from the original couch cushions. I wanted bigger, more comfortable cushions, so I custom made them from the stuffing from the original cushions and an old sheet.

This was one of the most satisfying projects I've ever undertaken, and actually pretty easy once I figured it out. Really happy. And comfortable.
