I have been making cushions for a new sofa this week. I didn’t want to put old cushions on the the sofa. They were very worn out and flat.
I made two cushions with a zipper and two with piping and a zipper.
I made two tutorials while I was sewing them. You can download them from the tutorial page.
Always cut the fabric about 1″ smaller than the insert, that will make the cushion more full.
I used home decor fabric for the red ones and quilting weight fabric with a woven light-weight interfacing for the blue ones.
The piping fabric is left over cotton fabric that I cut strips on the bias and then joined them with a diagonal seam.
There is many ways to sew on a zipper. I show two different ways in the tutorials.
Until next time, Happy Sewing and take care!
