Small Cushion Tutorial
Today I am going to explain how to make a small cushion. I am sure most of you know how to do it, but when I started to make finitions of my embroideries (and even now) I found very useful the tutorial people published in the web and I need to say that they are still very useful as obviously it is not possible to know all what you want and we are continuously learning.
The first thing is obviously choose and embroider the design we want. Once it is done we cut the embroidered fabric in a square of the desired measures plus 1 inch each side. For example if you want your cushion to be 4 inches you should cut a square 5 by 5 inches. Cut another square in the fabric you chose for the back of the same size as the embroidered fabric.
Hold with pins both squares right sides facing. Sew by hand or machine following the backstitch line leaving a small portion opened.
Trim the edges leaving half an inch from the sewing line and turn it around pushing the corners.
Fill with toy stuffing and sew the opened side with hidden stitches.
Our small cushion is ready!!!!
I hope you find useful this tutorial. Don’t doubt in asking if you have any question and please send me the picture of your finished cushion. Enjoy!!!!!!
