Cushions with Vietnamese Fabric

When I was in Vietnam, I regularly thought about my house, and more specifically how I wanted to further decorate it. Especially after reading design blogs. I lived on a street with 4-5 fabric stores and was always on the lookout for something out of the ordinary. A print caught my eye on my way to the gym one day. It was beige and white, and there was also a turquoise version (that I also purchased). When I inquired there were 2 metres left of a brown version. I promptly purchased it to recover my chairs.



I've already had a post about my chairs, reupholstered in a leaf pattern. I obvious did not get to use the Vietnamese fabric. I thought it would be perfect as cushions for my couch. So I took advantage of my mom, quite literally, and got her to sew me new cushions. I did take the chance to re-learn how to work the sewing machine she has left me (and that has not been used much...). I really hope to use my newly re-gained skills.




I really like the print and I think the cushions came out very well, especially with the buttons. This just proves that you can find nice fabric in Vietnam, you just have to look really hard!
