I ended up making a cushion cover tonight. An impromptu act, but something I’d been hoping to learn to make for some time.
It was approaching 7:30pm and, being the first day of British Summer Time this year, was still light outside. So I felt more awake than I would usually at this time on a Sunday evening, and got out my latest crafty project. Whilst I was cutting out some material, I realised the amount I had left over could be perfect for a cushion cover. & That it would go well with the other item I was making (more on that later, I’m sure).
Armed with the knowledge from friends that, ‘it’s easy’. & ‘Just fold it over’, I embarked on making my cushion cover. I consulted some online tutorials, as per usual. But rather than cut out various pieces of fabric, as suggested here, I did it all in one piece, referring to this one (envelope pillow cover is another name for it apparently), but making it up as I went along mostly.
It could be even quicker next time, but we’ll see. Without further ado, here’s what my latest creation looks like:
