How to Sew Gingham Cushion Covers :-) xx
Want to make 3 gingham cushion covers for just £13.65? All you need is a couple of hours and a few easy ingredients! Let me show you how! xx
Here's what you'll need :
- 1 metre of our 100% Gingham Cotton (which comes in 11 colours!)
- 6 metres of woven tassel trim (which comes in 15 colours!) - 2 metres per cushion
- Matching sewing thread
- Sharp scissors & pins
- Sewing Machine or hand sewing needle
There is enough fabric to make 3 cushions - but I'm going to outline just making one cushion...
Step One : Cut out 2 squares of gingham 50cm x 50cm
Step Two : Sew 2m of the tassel trim FACING INWARDS around the edge of one of the gingham squares. You can pin it first if you want to - but I just 'went for it' LOL ;-) Just make sure it's not right at the edge and you've left a minimum of about 5mm:
it should look something like this :
Step Three : Now pin this square to a 2nd square (trimming is inside) :
The gingham is pretty much the same on both sides, so there isn't really a right side and a wrong side.
Sew the 2 squares together around 3 sides - leaving one side open.
TOP TIP : Use the line of sewing from your tassel trimming as a guide when you sew the 2 squares together :
Step Four : Turn inside out and stuff the cushion inside :
Step Five : Turn in and pin final side - (this will be hand sewn!)
Sew final side by oversewing in tiny stitches - or stitch however you find easiest! And then you're finished! :-) xx Happy Sewing! xx
