Woven Cushion Cover Tutorial


  • English Garden fabric roll by The Craft Cotton Company

  • 2 fat quarters from the English Garden fat quarter set by The Craft Cotton Company

  • Cushion pad

  • Scissors

  • Thread

  • Tape measure

  • Pins


Step 1

Separate the fabric roll strips into the 5 different pattern designs and choose 4 that you want to use for the cushion front (leaving one pattern unused). Take 4 strips from the 4 designs you have selected giving 16 strips in total.

Step 2

Take one of the fabric roll strips and fold in half along its short edge placing right sides together. Sew down each side leaving the short edge unsewn. Turn out the right way and press. Repeat for the remaining strips.

Step 3

Trim the strips so that they are all 40cm long.

Step 4

Choose 2 of the fabric patterns and lay them downwards alternating between the 2 different patterns. Take the remaining 2 fabric patterns and alternating between the two fabric patterns weave them across the downward strips.

Step 5

Pin to secure the strips in place and sew a line 0.5 cm from the edge so all strips are fixed in place.

Step 6

Take the two fat quarters and cut each one so it measures 40x50 cm. Fold these pieces in half so you have two pieces 40x26 cm, these form the two back pieces.

Step 7

Place the woven front right side up and place the two back pieces on top with an 11 cm overlap. Pin and sew around the edge to secure.

Step 8

Turn out the right way.
