Cushion covers we can never have enough! These specimens immediately provide a good mood. The simple sewing instructions are available for free.

You need this for the cushion covers (40x40 cm):

  • Various patterned Free Spirit cotton fabrics by Amy Butler / specialized trade or via Makeitcoats.com
  • matching sewing thread (department store)
  • Inner cushion
  • tape measure
  • Cloth scissors (department store)
  • pins
  • sewing machine

And that's how easy it is:

1. Cut strips of fabric measuring 45 x 110 cm.

2. Iron the two narrow sides 1 cm in each case two times inward. Edge hem.

3. Overlay the fabric strip on the right side so that the fabric overlaps in the middle and creates a piece of 41 x 45 cm.

4. Fix open sides with pins and sew the edges together with a seam allowance of 2 cm.

5. Turn fabric over.

6. Insert filling pad through the opening. For an oblong pillow of z. B. 41 x 61 cm fabric of 110 x 65 cm is required. At the 65 cm long edges turn twice and stitch. Then lay them over so that the fabric overlaps 20 cm in the middle and creates a piece of 41 x 65 cm.
