Would you like to freshen up your home? A couple of new cushions can make a big difference and are often all you need.

Shop-bought cushions can be expensive but why pay out when they are actually quite easy to make. Learn how to make professional looking cushions with zips and piping to match your furnishings and you'll never need to buy a cushion again.

I'll show you how to sew in a zip - a foundation sewing skill.

Then we'll look at a variety of decorative details such as piping, frills and flanges.

Piping is covered in bias binding so the workshop will include how to make your own bias-binding too. That way it'll coordinate with your other fabrics. Or you can use shop-bought.

Then you'll design and make your own cushion cover.

What will I learn?

-measuring & cutting your fabric including pattern placement
-inserting a zip (standard lapped-style zip or a concealed zip)
-making your own bias binding to coordinate with your cushion fabric
-adding the piping
-completing the cushion
-finishing touches to give a professional look to your unique cushion

You will need to bring your own choice of fabric and cushion pad. I'll advise you what you need to bring once you've booked.

Sewing machines are available or you can bring your own if you prefer.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cushion-making with Zips and Piping are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
