Fabric for some Cushions

You wont believe what a bargain I got on the weekend, I found these for $1.00 each, so I brought 4!

I know I know you are probably thinking "What the Heck - They are tea towels!" But I couldn't resist, they were the perfect colour I have been looking for to make cushions for my ugly brown lounge and at $1 each it doesn't really matter if it doesn't work out! Right? Don't get me wrong I love our lounge, it just isn't the greatest colour. But considering we have just had a baby, it made complete sense when we brought it!

You can't really tell in the photos, because I am such a bad photographer, but they are a really light mint green colour. Kinda like this colour:


I also think the textured pattern will add a bit of character to them? What do you wreckon?

A couple of weeks ago I also got a couple of fabric samples to try and decide what look I want to go for with cushions for the lounge... These are the ones I like...

I really love this piece of fabric, and it matches right in with the brown on it already!

This is nice and crisp and simple...

I am not too sure about this one, I really like it, but maybe not on the lounge?!

Which ones do you think I should use to make cushions for our lounge? All of them together, just one of them maybe? Also don' t forget it has to match with the mint green tea towels I just brought as well.

I am also in desperate need of a good tutorial to make these cushions! I have a brand new sewing machine sitting on my desk, and have only ever used it once! I'm hoping they will turn out half decent enough to actually show in public! Ha!

I would love your help and your opinions :)
