Updated: Apr 17, 2020

This classy cushion cover is actually a lot simpler to make than you might think! No button holes or zips, a beginner could easily make this!

Use a ¼” seam allowance

Made with A Cottage Garden by Debbie Shore fabric


  • 12” square cushion pad

  • 45” x 13” poppy stripe fabric

  • 20” x 12 ½”” dragonfly script pink fabric

  • 4 buttons

  • Scallop template [download]

Step 1 - Cut two rectangles of poppy stripe fabric measuring 10” x 12 ½”. Place your template along the edge of one piece, and draw around the scallop shape. You should have ¼” left at each end of the template.

Step 2 - Place the two rectangles right sides together, sew over the drawn line. Cut out the scalloped shape, approx. 1/8” from the stitch line, then snip into the ‘V’ shapes, be careful not to cut the stitches!

Step 3 - Turn the right side out and press, top stitch around the edge. Sew a button the centre of each scallop.

Step 4 - Fold the pink fabric in half wrong sides together and press. Top stitch along the fold.

Step 5 - Cut two 12 ½” squares of poppy fabric. Place the scallop fabric face down over the right side of one piece, lining up the raw edges, pin.

Step 6 - Place the pink fabric over the opposite side and again, pin.

Step 7 - Sew a few lines of tacking stitch to secure the layers, then sew straight along one side. Take out the pins. Place the remaining square of poppy fabric face down over the top, sew all the way around leaving a turning gap over the side you’ve already sewn. Snip off the corners.

Step 8 - Turn the right side out, sew the opening closed. Turn through again insert your cushion pad, you’re finished! Add a little bow to decorate if you wish!
