CUSHION COVER: FAST & EASY!

Hi! A few things are never too many!
Like cushions!
Have a pair of 10x10 inches cushions,
Sew covers for them from left overs...

All I used was:
Adequate amount of printed heavy fabric for front
and matching cotton fabric for back
Some trimming(them came out of fleece shawl I used for making baby quilt)
Matching sewing thread, scissors, measuring tape and sewing machine
And, yes a little velcro

Front was easiest done by cutting out 10.4"x10.4" printed fabrics
The back was made such that the cushion can be put in or out through an overlapping opening
Fixed in place using velcro in the centre

Now the more tricky part
Sewing the pieces of fabric together in right order:
1st: the back fabric facing the right side up
2nd:  the trimming or any edging facing the right side up; and with the lacy or free side towards the centre or inwards
and last 3rd: the front fabric with the WRONG side up

Following the above order, once you finish sewing all around, neatly sewing in the edging and turn the cushion inside out You get a perfect cushion cover.

So simple
Just one morning!

Enjoy simple pleasures of life!
