Sewing fat quarter cushions

 

I've been sewing lots of cushions lately as they make great gifts and are fantastic stash busters too.

I use two fat quarters, a zip and of course, a cushion insert

It's a great way to use all those pretty fat quarters in your stash that have been sitting there because you never wanted to cut them up!

How do I make them? Well, you could check out my YouTube video on how I make them or for notes on how I do it then keep on reading below:

Choose two co-coordinating fat quarters, a pretty coloured zip that is either the same length or longer (& you trim it down to size) and a cushion insert. Yep, that's all you need!

First, sew the zip onto the first fat quarter, then line up the second fat quarter and sew the zip onto it.

I then go back and sew a zigzag along the edge to neaten the edges. 

Open the zipper up partway, then line up (& pin if necessary) the three remaining sides and sew. Then go back and do a zigzag stitch to neaten the edges & prevent fraying.  Trim any excesss loose threads.

Turn the cushion inside out & insert the cushion insert & close the zipper. 

Done! One very quick, fun fat quarter cushion!
