Guys. I am officially in love with piping.
I always thought it was a bit of a faff, but look at how much pop they give a humdrum pillow. Not crazy in-your-face colour, just a touch of hey-now-that's-nice.
Ever since we knew we'd be bringing home a baby I've been on a major home decorating kick. I call it 'Operation Tidy Home'.
And black and white geometric cushions with shots of colour have been high on my decorating priority list.
But instead of shelling out a pretty penny for piped cushions I wanted to have a go at making my own - ramping up a simple envelop cushion with homemade piping.
I also love the main fabric - a remnant brought back from Vietnam by Scott's sister a few years ago. Doesn't look too shabby next to the turquoise linen piping.
