How to Make a Felt Applique Cushion

Learn how to make a felt applique cushion and make good use of either off-cuts of fabric, or felt sheets by turning them into contemporary patterned cushions. For a more coordinated effect, try hand-sewing the pattern onto plain cushions using contrasting thread. To vary the look, try using a few different-shaped cushions for a really original finish. Perfect for those with a little knowledge of how to sew!…

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make
  1. Cut one piece of cream coloured felt 41 cm x 41cm for the front panel.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Overlap these pieces so that when pinned they form the envelope back of the cushion, measuring 41 cm square.
  5. Place the front panel on top of this (right sides together) pin, then machine stitch around the outside.
  6. Snip triangles from the corners to reduce bulk, then remove pins and turn right side out.
  7. Place cushion pad inside the cover.
