Cushions from leftovers

I was asked to make a cushion to match the headboard and bed skirt. ( The gray one).

What was leftover for the cushion presented quite a challenge because there were only 4 pieces, the largest being 16″ x 18″, the other 3 about 5″ x 16″ so

I designed this cushion and added a tassel. It’s pleated on the right edge but only about halfway -, that’s all the fabric I had. The brown striped cushion follows the same design and with the pleats, it isn’t just a typical striped cushion. 

I like being able to use one good tassel. I sew a button on the inside of the bottom pleat to which I attach the tassel so it can be removed for cleaning.
