Step 1 ~ Cushion Cover

Materials needed:

  • stitched square
  • border fabrics
  • backing fabric
  • a cushion insert/stuffing
  • needle and thread

I have used a cushion from IKEA that costs 49p and measures 14in x 14in or 35cm x 35cm. However it is blue so be careful when wanting to use lighter fabrics.

Firstly iron all your fabrics and trim your stitched square. I trimmed mine to 6in x 6in as it was only small. Obviously your sizes may vary.

I cut 4 rectangles of 6in x 2 in and 4 squares of 2in x 2in for the first border.

cut all border pieces and sew togerther in three's
