How to Sew a Felt Confetti Cushion

How to Sew a Confetti Cushion #Sewing

Cushions are a great way of adding colour to a room and giving it a bit of a face lift, whether it be your bedroom of living room. By making your own you can have exactly what you want and maybe even save a few pennies along the way.

Stylist Milly Goodwin shows us how to make her beautiful confetti design, which was inspired ‘by the trend for 3D cut-out felt, and the clashing colour palette is a favourite combination from 1950s Miami’.

How to make
  1. Using a steel ruler and a pen / pencil, mark out horizontal and vertical lines to form a grid on each sheet of felt. We’ve used the width of the ruler as a guide for each line, but for smaller or larger petals vary the width (make sure you end up with a square shape.)
  2. Once you’ve marked up every sheet, cut them into long strips. Then, working on one strip at a time, cut each square diagonally to form triangular petals.
  3. Next, mark up your cushion so you know where to place each flower. These are one and a half inches apart, but for a richer texture stitch them closer together. Thread your tapestry needle (with thread double thickness and with a big knot at the end) and, using your markers, pass the needle up through the inside of the cushion cover, pulling tight.
  4. Pass each individual flower, in rotating order (using eight petals per flower), in the same direction (long-side facing towards you) through the needle and pull tight.
  5. Finish with another big knot on the inside. Carry on attaching flowers until the cushion is covered. Insert cushion pad.
