Making your own cushion covers is a fantastic way to personalize your home. You can choose unique fabrics, interesting prints and protect pillows and cushions of all different sizes. Our quick guide will help you easily make custom cushion covers that look professional. However, you don’t have to be a professional seamstress to make cushion covers. Even a novice crafter can make cushion covers and we will tell you all the steps.
You don’t need much to make perfect cushion covers. You can grab all the supplies at your local craft store. Here is what to get:
- Fabric – Pick a durable but soft fabric. Consider how to clean the fabric as well. Machine washable is always best!
- Thread – Choose a thread that matches your fabric. You want the colour to be close to your fabric colour so that the thread blends in
- Straight Pins – a few pins will help keep the cushion cover together as you sew.
In addition to these materials, you will also need a sewing machine, an iron and some straight pins. Once you have these items you are ready to make a cushion cover!
Tip: Feel free to add a zipper to the last side of the cushion cover. A zipper on the fourth side will allow you to easily open and close the cushion cover, taking the cushion out of the cover occasionally to wash. Zippers can be tricky but they are very useful and practical!
