I went to the Upmarket on sunday. I do like it, but it has become so busy that it is beginning to be a bit unpleasant. I bought fabric from Old Grey House. I was determined to use this fabric quickly (I’ve bought fabric from them before, which is still in my stash!). I made a cushion – pretty simple.
I made the cushion cover 17 inches (and I used an 18 inch cushion insert). I read somewhere that the cover should be smaller than the insert.
Putting the zip in was a bit tricky (haven’t done that in a while), but I saw a tutorial on you tube (I can’t find the link now) where the sewist used painters tape to hold the zip in place and then stitched from the front – definitely going to try that next time.
