How to

Step 1

Hoop a piece of linen fabric large enough for the cushion cover front with tearaway or cutaway stabilizer.

Step 2

Download the pattern and send to your embroidery machine. Embroider the design.

Step 3

Remove the fabric from the hoop, remove the excess stabiliser.

Step 4

Trim to the desired size to fit your cushion.

Step 5

Take the other piece of cushion fabric and place it wrong side up. Attach the pompom trim or piping around the edge of the cushion. Pin in place.

Step 6

Take the other piece of linen and place it right side up. Attach the pompom trim all around, edges aligning. Pin. Sew in place with the adjustable or narrow zipper foot.

Step 7

Install the zipper on the bottom edge of the cushion. You can use an invisible or normal zipper.

Tip: if you haven’t sewn with invisible zippers before, check out our ‘how to’ video here.

Step 8

Line up the remaining three edges and sew all around right side to right side, enclosing the trim or piping in the seams. Finish with zig zag or overlock stitch.

Step 9

Turn right side out and insert cushion inner.
