Using Patterned Fabrics
We love using fabrics with design on them for projects.
There can be a few extra steps involved in the planning stages though, here's a few tips on what we might suggest.
Cushion's Length is Less than the Width of the Fabric
If the patterned fabric has a width greater than the length of the cushion you need, we're fine and dandy. As most designs go along the length of a fabric (as shown below in the Sophie Allport "Bees" fabric), this set up should mean your cushion will have the design going the right way round.
Cushion's Length is Greater than the Width of the Fabric
If the length of the cushion you need is greater than the width of the fabric, we have a few options here.
We can have the cushion going down the length of the fabric (in some "L" shaped seating areas this would be a better option for the get go). This keeps the top and bottom panels of the cushion as one piece of fabric.
