The internet does not help, at all, with my sewing
problem addiction. I spied these Land of Nod seat cushions on Susan’s website, Living with Punks. I love to give credit where credit is due! She has a fabulous tutorial on how to make these and I was surprised at how easy they were for me. The big girls each got one for Christmas from us. I have yet to make one for Rebecca and it’s just because I haven’t found fabric I like for her yet. I’m still looking.
Land of Nod has 2 different kinds of seat cushions. The one seater & the two seater. Susan’s tutorial is for the one seater. Since I didn’t have a compass (a.k.a. couldn’t find one), I ended up with a 20 inch circle, instead of a 17″ one. It’s in between the sizes of the one seater & the two seater. It was a bit more work to calculate how much fabric I needed to go around the side walls but it was doable. But it also required piecing together the large side wall piece with a small piece to make it long enough.
Don’t let these fool you. They aren’t any cheaper than if you would buy them. I needed a yard of fabric which would normally cost me $30. Thankfully the home dec fabric was on sale at Joann’s.
Here are a few pictures:
And a bonus picture of our dog making himself comfy:
So what do you think? Could you make one?

Oh i don't know if I could do it, but I looove it! I have to get back to acual sewing, I've done so much hand embroidery and cross stitch for Christmas there was no time for sewing, but I already have several projects in mind 🙂
Susan, I've never even seen home dec fabric for $5! I'd love it if I did, though. I had to do some wrangling since I changed your measurements but I love them.
Amy, I keep a sewing journal. It's a list of projects I want to work on, clippings from catalogs of things I want to make, and drawings of things I design.
Love the pillow! Will you be selling them on the bigcartel website?
