Pom poms have made a bit of a comeback recently, whether it’s fringing on cushions, throws and light shades. Or large pom poms covering the whole item. 

Today we share some great tutorials showing you the techniques for making pom poms and the best ways to attach them to your desired cushion or throw [ Of course, you can always buy ready made pom poms to cut the job in half ]. Have fun with it, mix colours up for a kids bedroom or perhaps something more subtle for a grown up living room. The options are endless.

[ Pom pom trim available from eBay and Amazon ]

We have all seen appliqué used on soft furnishings but quite often we see examples using florals or animals which can tend to look dated. To bring the appliqué technique up to date how about using typography. Personalise a cushion with an initial or make a statement with a slogan or phrase.

appliqué : ornamental needlework in which pieces of fabric are sewn or stuck on to a larger piece to form a picture or pattern.

We have found some tutorials to get you inspired, giving step by step guidance on creating your perfect appliqué cushion.
