    Sewing club! Tutorial: Crafty tea towel projects - Sew a super cushion!

    It's time for another edition of Sewing club with Team Treffry! Today we're showing you how to make a super cushion out of our small dogs tea towel - could be the perfect little gift for someone if you've still got some Christmas shopping to do! Good luck with the project and we'd love to see your finished makes if you create a cushion too! (You can find the tea towel here) You will need: A lovely Small dogs tea towel, fabric for backing the cushion (you could use an old cream pillow case), scissors, pins, a pencil,  a tape measure and a sewing machine IMG_4293 Cut the tea towel to 18” x 18” to make the front of the cushion. You will have a little bit of the tea towel left that you can use for one part of the back of the cushion, Cut this left over piece to 18” x 11”. Cut the pillow case or fabric to 18” x 11” to make the second piece of the cushion back. IMG_4294 Taking the two back pieces of the cushion, fold over the top edge only of each piece approx ½” and then fold again and pin in place so you have neat double folded hem. Sew along both folded hems, removing the pins as you go. IMG_4296 Place the front of the cushion cover with right sides facing up, place one piece of hemmed cushion back FACE DOWN over the cushion front, making sure the hemmed edge is running horizontally along the middle of the cushion front. Do the same with the second piece. IMG_4297 IMG_4298 Pin around all four edges of the cushion and sew, removing pins as you go.
