Family Circle cushions

Here's an inspiring spread of cushion ideas from the Family Circle Book of Crafts (1980). I particularly like the fruity cushions, made from zingy canvas fabric with applique shapes. Imagine a whole row of orange slices on a brown 1970s sofa...

The busy paisley-style cushions could be made from up-cycled chair cover fabric or other vintage fabric finds. Not too convinced by that tie-dye beanbag though; it looks like someone's had an accident with a mocha coffee or three.


  1. Maybe it's just me but does that beanbag look like some kind of enormous meat product? Dino burger?

  2. I think it is indeed some sort of prehistoric scrotum, well spotted.
