How to Make

  • Cut one piece of cream coloured felt 41 cm x 41cm for the front panel.
  • Download the felt applique cushion template. Use it to cut the coloured felt shapes, pin and stitch in place. Sew on sequins, mirror rims and buttons.
  • Cut two further pieces from the cream coloured felt, one at 41 cm x 20 cm, one at 41 cm x 33 cm. Pin and machine stitch a hem along one long edge of each piece and press.
  • Overlap these pieces so that when pinned they form the envelope back of the cushion, measuring 41 cm square.
  • Place the front panel on top of this (right sides together) pin, then machine stitch around the outside.
  • Snip triangles from the corners to reduce bulk, then remove pins and turn right side out.
  • Place cushion pad inside the cover.
