Turn your hand to this quick craft idea by Deputy Editor, Sara Bird, and jazz up a plain cushion in minutes.
Choose a pretty patterned fabric with different motifs and designs, such as flowers and birds. Using fusible webbing iron on to the back of your patterned fabric paper side up. Turn your fabric right side facing and cut out your selected designs. Work out where you want your patches to go on a plain cushion case. Peel off the backing paper and iron onto the cushion case glue side down.
