Once you've decided on color(s), think about what type of feel you want the pillows to have. Would you prefer a soft, cushiony pillow or one that has some stiffness so that you can lean up against it? Also take into account the ease of sewing. If you're a beginning sewer, you might want to choose a weightier, more closely knit fabric like cotton that's suitable for drapery. Silk and some polyesters that have a ˝sheen˝ to them will be more difficult to sew.
Couch pillows that are hand made can be stitched with unique designs. It is possible to use beads and sequins to decorate couch pillows. Beautifully embroidered pillows can blend with almost any background. Intricate designs may take longer for completion. There are cushion makers who make pillows as per the requirement of the buyer. Colors and designs can be chosen from samples available with the makers. Alternatively, buyers can suggest a traditional design that would blend with the ambience of the room.
Count - you will have to decide how many pillows you actually need for your home. Usually, medium sized sofa requires between three and five cushions on it, chairs needs one pillow per a chair, and for a bed you probably will need two pillows.
Decorative pillows make great home decor accessories and come in a variety of designs and materials. The main types one will find are needlepoint, embroidered, hooked, silk, and Aubusson.
Visit a local fabric store to purchase the supplies you'll need to make your decorative pillows. If there isn‘t one nearby, you can also find lots of fabric and supplies online. Or, you may have an existing item of clothing or other fabric in your home that you want to recycle for this project.
