Cushion-Making with zips & piping

Thursday 2 August
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Shop-bought cushions can be expensive but why pay out when they are actually quite easy to make. Learn how to make professional looking cushions with zips and piping to match your furnishings and you’ll never need to buy a cushion again.

I’ll show you how to sew in a zip – a foundation sewing skill.

Then we’ll look at a variety of decorative details such as piping, frills and flanges.

Piping is covered in bias binding so the workshop will include how to make your own bias-binding too. That way it’ll coordinate with your other fabrics. Or you can use shop-bought. Then you’ll design and make your own cushion cover.

What will I learn? This workshop will cover:
