Flip n stitch cushion

sewing classes Sussex

This is a fantastic fun project. No patchwork experience is needed, you just need to be competent with your machine (able to thread and wind a bobbin etc).

Using just simple strips you will create this stunning cushion cover but it could just as easily become a bag. Rest assured this is going to be a fun session and you will definitely go on to make more, everyone does.

Not just about the patchwork you will also learn how to insert a lapped zip in a cushion for a professional finish. Many attendees are often inserting a zip for the first time and, using our tried and tested techniques, are amazed at the finish they get. Come on, let’s be brave!

What you will need

You will need:

  • 10 x 2.5inch jelly roll strips. ( A whole jelly roll makes approx 5 of these cushion fronts)
  • 1 x 10cm square piece of the fabric for the centre
  • 1/2m of fabric or a piece approx 75cm tall by 50cm wide for the back of the cushion.
  • Cotton to match, we do suggest at least two normal size reels as this project does eat thread.

All other materials are provided.
