Feather Cushion - Feat. Indian Summer
Project by Jo Eldred
Fabric: Indian Summer, a collaboration with the V&A
I made an Applique Rough edge Feather cushion, using an embroidery file from SWPEA and using my Brother V3 Embroidery Machine.
What you'll need:
6x10 hoop (160mm x 260mm) hoop
PANEL 1 AND PANEL 3
Fabric A – 2x 20cm x 30cm (8”x 12”) background
Small pieces of fabric for the feather applique – 14 feather pieces per panel
Finished dimensions - 30cmW x 50cmL (12”x 20”)
How to make:
Following the steps on the Embroidery machine, you place each piece of fabric down, stitch the line and then trim as close as possible using Duckbill scissors.
I made 2 feather sections, placed them facing Right Sides Together and stitched them together using a ¼ seam.
Cut 4 strips to edge the cushion, stitched right sides together.
I ironed the seams open and now want to make a zipped closure cushion cover.
Stitch the front cushion with a plain piece of fabric, I stitched the long edge then lay the two pieces open and iron flat. Lay the zip face down and sew using a zipper foot, Unpick the seam to expose the zip.
Then open the zip and then stitch around all 4 edges turn the cushion right side out and stuff.
