Ombre Herringbone Cushions

Being like the biggest fan of herringbone i had to have herringbone cushions because that seemed like the obvious next step. Right.

And knowing i had my fabric paints leftover from my DIY Rug Makeover post so it only made sense to use it on these cushions.

fabric colorsI had to go buy white cotton fabric for this project since i had all colors of fabric at home besides white. Just my luck.

I honestly could not wait for these cushions so as soon as i bought the fabric i  started the taping process without even ironing the creases out. Which was definitely a bad move.

With my trusty paint brush I started the painting process. I could have used a sponge but i felt liked using a paintbrush this time around.

I went from yellow to orange to pink to dark pink.

fabric all doneAll done and ironed i went ahead and stitched it into cushion covers.

And there you have it.

    Ooooh, I just LOVE these! I am a huge herringbone fan, too, and just made my first quilt top as a herringbone pattern. I love the bright colors you chose for this project–a definite pick me up during this cold winter :)
