Comfort is key when it comes to decorating your space and sometimes all it takes is a blanket or a cushion to make your place feel a little more like home. Can’t find the perfect item though? Don’t worry. I have you covered! Here are the instructions for making your own personalised cushion.
What you will need:
Fabric of your choice
Needle & Thread
What you need to do:
Cut out the fabric in the size you prefer. I used the measurements 35 x 31cm.
With the right sides facing towards each other (wrong side facing up), sew 3 of the 4 side’s together, approximately 6mm- 1cm from the edge. If you don’t have a sewing machine, you can easily hand sew these pieces with a needle and thread with tight stitches.
Turn your pillowcase inside out and give it a good iron to flatten the edges and corners. Make sure the iron is on the correct setting suitable for the fabric you are using.
Measure how much trim you require and hand sew the pom pom trimmings onto one side of the pillowcase. Do this to all four edges of the pillowcase.
Stuff your pillowcase with stuffing!
Fold the non-trimmed side inwards to 1cm and pin it to the trimmed side. Close the pillowcase by hand sewing the edges back together.
Tip: Pin your fabric pieces and trims along the way so it is nice and secure when you sew!
