Pattern Details

This sewing guide is suitable for anyone who has basic experience of using a sewing machine and following simple sewing patterns. It shows you how to make an envelope style(no zip) cushion cover to fit a 16" or 18" cushion pad. This design uses two coordinating fabrics, one for the main cover and a contrasting one for the flap and ties. It is so striking when made from a patterned and plain mix in two similar shades but equally you could use floral with dotty, striped with plain or bright contrasting colours. Try out different combinations from your fabric collection! The sewing guide is 10 pages long and has simple step-by-step instructions with lots of close up photographs to show you how.
