Round Floor Cushion Tutorial

Morning lovelies! This weekend I am having a family barbeque so I have been busy trying to get the garden in to order, making lots of lovely seat cushions and floor cushions with my Gutermann fabric and tomorrow I will be baking and cooking in the kitchen and finishing off the last bits of sewing etc. I will hopefully share lots of photos and projects next week of what I have been up to but in the meantime I wanted to share with you today my new outdoor floor cushions...

To make them super comfy and hardwearing I fused Vlieseline fusible batting H640 to all the panels which gives them a lovely soft smooth look and feel, and is easy to apply as you just place the interlining with the coated side on the wrong side of the fabric. Cover with a damp cloth and press each area for about 15 seconds, without pushing the iron. Allow the pieces to cool flat for about 30 minutes, so that the adhesive can set properly and away you go.

As I plan to use the floor cushions outside I have sprayed them with Liquiproof, which uses the innovative qualities of nanotechnology to form an invisible barrier, which is water-resistant and oil-repellent. The individual fibres of the surface are bonded with silicone dioxide particles which form the protective coating, meaning my cushion surfaces are fully protected from oil and water.

Here's my Round Floor Cushion Tutorial...
