Faker crochet cushion

  1. 1. How to:<br />faker crochet cushion<br />kootoyoo … click & stitch<br />
  2. 2. Supplies: vintage crochet table cloth & a white bedsheet & cushion insert (any size).Be smart & use the seamed top & bottom of the sheet for your envelope closure…cutting corners is good (it adds to the fakery).<br />
  3. 3. Top tip: I read somewhere that you should cut your fabric exactly the same size as your cushion insert. DON’T add seam allowance. It makes for a plumper cushion. <br />Check your insert size. Let’s say it’s 50cm? We need 1 x 50cm square. You can cut precisely if you like or just rip & tear like I did. There’s something very satisfying about ripping & tearing fabric.You’ll also need a couple of rectangles to make the envelope style closure at the back of the cushion.The rectangles need to be 50cm wide and say about 35cm long. <br />
  4. 4. Lay out your 50 cm ripped square & then cut your crochet table cloth to the same size (or a bit larger – you can trim after you’ve done the sewing).<br />
  5. 5. Now lay your 30cm ripped strips on top of the sheeting & crochet layers.The strips should over lap a bit.<br />
  6. 6. Pin well. We don’t want the cloth shifting during the sewing up.<br />
  7. 7. Machine all the way around the edge of the cushion.<br />
  8. 8. Trim away any overhanging lace & your corners.<br />
  9. 9. Turn in the right way…stuff and & enjoy.<br />September 2010 www.kootoyoo.com<br />
