Design your own cushions

Create special effects with lettering stencils

To make a sofa really cosy, you need to add some comfy cushions. Ideally, they should match the decor of the room and look really stylish. With that in mind, what could be better than making your own! For this decorative idea we bought light-coloured cushion covers and decorated them using stencils and edding textile markers and pens. You can see here how this can result in some fantastic creations. When it comes to selecting a colour scheme, you’ll be spoilt for choice – because edding textile markers are available in up to 20 vibrant colours and two different stroke widths.
