How To Create Square Cushion with Contrast Piping and Button?

How To Create Square Cushion with Contrast Piping and Button?

Follow steps 1 to 4 of the square piped cushion, but using print fabric for bias strips to cover the piping cord.

Cover the self-cover button with the same fabric as the piping strip Using very strong thread (or at least four strands of polyester sewing thread), stitch the button centrally onto the front of the cushion, stitching right the way through the pad and out through the back of the cover, pulling up the thread tightly to pull the cushion (NB The button will have to be removed before the cover is removed for laundering).

Cushion with Double Border

  1. From the plain fabric, cut out a 59cm (23 ½ in) square for the front of the cover From the print fabric, cut out a 67cm (26 ¾ in) square for the border and front backing, and two rectangles measuring 47 x 35cm ( 18 ¾ x 14 in) for the back cover sections Turnings of 1.5cm (5/8 in) are included in these measurements.
  2. On the wrong side of the front piece, mark lines4.5cm (1 ¾ in) in from the outer edges. At each corner, fold the square diagonally with right sides facing so that the adjacent sides match Then stitch across the corners at right angles to the folded edge, starting at the point where the two marked lines cross Carefully trim away the excess fabric at the corners, leaving 1cm (3/8 in) beyond the stitching line, and press these four mitred corner seams open. Turn the corners through to the right side and press again, pressing 4,5cm
    (1 ¾ in) to the wrong side along all four edges.
  3. Make up the backing piece in the same way as above but this time mark the lines 6 5cm (2 ½ in) in from the edges and press this amount to the wrong side along all four edges once the section is turned through to the right side.
  4. Lay the front backing piece flat with its wrong side facing upper- most With the right side of the front section facing uppermost lay this section centrally on top of the front backing piece – the backing section should extend 2cm ( ¾ in ) beyond the front section along all four edges Tack (baste) the two sections together. Then, working from the right side stitch the two pieces together along all four edges, stitching through all fabric layers 5cm (2in)
    in from the outer edge of the backing piece (3cm ( ¼ in) in from the edges of the front section). Press.
  5. Fold 2cm ( ¾ in) to the wrong side along one longer edge of each back section Turn under the raw edge and stitch in place Overlap the two finished edges of the back pieces to form a square measuring 47cm (18 ¾ in) and stitch across the sides Press 1,5cm ( 5/8 in ) to the wrong side along all four edges of this complete back section.
  6. Lay the front pieces out flat with the front backing piece facing uppermost and lay the wrong side of the back sections on top of this The edges of the back section should fall level with the previous stitching line. Tack (baste) the cushion pieces together Just inside the pressed edges of the back sections.

Turn the complete cushion cover over and working from the right side, stitch through all layers of fabric just inside the previous stitching line to secure the back of the cover to the front. Press Insert.  The cushion pad.
