Create a stylish striped cushion with pretty ribbons. Trims and readymade cushion cover from Hobbycraft.
Make stylish striped cushions in minutes with ribbons and trims.
You will need
Cushion cover (ours measured 40 x 40cm)
Ribbons and trims
Iron on fabric bonding tape
To make, decide the size of square shape that is to feature on the front of the cushion – ours measures 30x30cm, leaving a border of 5cm all around. Measure and cut the ribbons to the required width of the shape. Lay out the cushion cover, front facing, and evenly position the ribbons and trims to where the shape is to feature. Lift each one separately and pin back in place sandwiching a length of fabric bonding tape between each length and the cushion. Repeat with all the ribbons and trims. Follow the manufacturers instructions and iron to secure them in place, removing the pins gradually.
Designer tip – we used tonally coloured ribbons and trims, but this cushion would look very jolly using lots of different shades.
