Because I can't find any nice horse cushions I'm going to attempt to make my daughter a cushion similar to the one in the link..... maisieandoscar.co.uk/wpi…jpg
Does anybody have some material similar to the one's used on this cushion that I can buy off them?
We only have one fabric shop close by and they are closing down so don't have much choice and because I only need off cuts it seems silly to pay for a full metre.

I did look on eBay but I would need some slightly larger pieces, most of them are 10cm x 10 cm which wouldn't be big enough for the main part of the cushion.

1m2 will make about 2 cushions so just buy a metre length.
Assuming 1m x 0.5m per cushion at ~ 40cm x 40cm.

Check your local charity shops. Some have fabric bits in boxes or cheap sheets, clothes, cushion covers etc you could cut up.

If you are on Facebook you could try asking on a few sewing groups on there, I'm sure someone could help you, they seem quite friendly on some of them
