NEW! Make a Piped Cushion!
Cushion Making Master Class – Pillow Like a Pro!
Learn to make the kinds of cushions you see in shops!
In this 5 hour workshop you will learn the hugely popular skill of making the perfect cushion with piped edge trim and an invisible zipper.
The op shops have plenty of cushion inserts and we encourage you to Upcycle your materials wherever possible! Get creative.
– make piping from scratch from bias cut strips in fabric of your choice
– apply your piping to the cushion so it looks great
– insert an invisible zipper into a seam so it really is invisible
What to bring:
1 metre of fabric for your cushion. Medium to heavier weight twill weave, duck cloth or lightweight canvas, 100% cotton fabric is ideal
50cm of contrasting fabric for your piping. We will supply piping cord.
An invisible zipper 5 cm shorter than the side dimension of your cushion (we have zips in limited colours available)
A square cushion insert – we recommend 50cm x 50cm and preferably made from sustainable fill. We can advise you on where to purchase this after you enroll.
Skill level: You have basic sewing machine skills and can sew and finish seams.
