Cushion covers

I started off making a gingham patchwork quilt covers and failed miserably and ended up with these heart cushion covers for the sofa in my kitchen. I made them envelope style as I had no zips, I cut the heart fabrics using the cricut, I realise now I should have used wadding on the squares, but overall I am pleased at how they have turned out as I think they compliment the other two flag cushion covers I had made last month.
 The smaller cushions were filled with Ikea's 70pence cushions so overall the five new cushion covers cost me £1.40 and fabric from my stash which I had hoarded over the years!!
