Paper crafting my way to an apocalypse scrapbook with some knitting sewing and cooking thrown in.

Envelope Cushion Cover on Sewing Machine

on August 1, 2015

Today I finally got around to making some cushion covers.  I had the fabric for ages.  I made two for my sister who loves her tea!

I wanted a plump looking cushion so I cut out one piece of fabric about the same size as the cushion then two halves with a bit of an overlap.  Then I ironed a hem to one edge of the two halves.

Next I sewed a hem to one edge of the two halves.

Then I sewed the unhemmed edge to the large pieces of fabric.

Then I sewed up the sides and snipped corners.

Then I realised my overlap was too small and the cushion poked out, so I added a popper to hold the edges together and I added some buttons for decoration.
