Cushion-making with Zips and Piping

Friday 9 August, 2019
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Teacher: Jen Skedd
Suitable for: Confident sewing machine users

Price: £70

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.

Who is this aimed at?
Intermediate sewists. You need to have confident sewing machine skills.

What will I learn? This workshop will cover:

measuring & cutting your fabric
matching patterns
inserting a zip (standard lapped-style zip or a concealed zip)
making your own bias binding to coordinate with your cushion fabric
adding the piping
completing the cushion
finishing touches to give a professional look to your unique cushion
