The lovely people at Rodgers of York challenged me to make my own cushion this month, with the aid of a lovely new sewing kit and some Sanderson fabric.
Now I’m not renowned for my sewing skills, but my eldest daughter (aged 11) is, so I put her to work and here’s what we came up with.
I also have a full kit including sewing box, fabric and inner to giveaway so jump to the bottom of the page if you want to enter straight away.
The candy stripe fabric is bright and cheerful and will suit many rooms; we’re going to use it in one of the girls’ rooms once all the house renovations are complete.
How to Do It:
Placing the pieces face down we ironed and pinned a 1.5 cm edge along one side. This then allowed us to attach each side of the zip.
Finishing the edges and turning the material in the right way meant we were pretty much done.
Next we inserted the cushion pad, and hey presto, our Sanderson fabric cushion is now complete.
