WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 1m x 150cm wide Tapestry Fabric (any 150cm wide fabric can be used)
- Sewing machine and matching thread
- Butchers paper for drafting pattern
- Invisible zip
- Hobby fill or cushion insert
- Covered button kit to give a gathered look
Step 1 - Start by creating your cushion template. On a large piece of paper draw out the circle shape to be roughly 40 to 50cm wide.
Step 2 - Once you are happy with the shape of your cushion design add a 1cm seam allowance around the outside of the entire shape and cut out of paper using scissors.
Step 3 - Pin or trace off pattern onto fabrics, you will need 2 x each circle to create your cushion. Cut your pattern pieces out of your chosen fabrics.
Step 4 - Pin the invisible zip onto the right side of 1 of your pieces - sew down using a zipper foot. Repeat on the other side to finish inserting your invisible zip.
Step 5 - Once your invisible zip is in, open the zip a small amount so you can turn cushion the right way out once sewn. Pin together the remainder of the cushion sides and with a 1cm seam allowance sew pieces together.
Step 6 - When you can finished sewing, use scissors to snip into side seam on curved edges. This will help for cleaner lines once the cushion is turned through.
Step 7 - To finish turn cushion right side out through the zip opening and fill with hobby fill or cushion inserts and zip up to close!
