A Vintage Affair patchwork cushions

The lovely peeps at new craft store Musha Makes sent me a "Winter Memories" fabric charm pack from Tilda. So I decided to make some sparkly patchwork cushions for my Christmas Decor. Here's how...

3 Cushions

How-to step by step

    Step 1

    Pick 9 squares of fabric from the charm pack. Lay out squares to form a pleasing pattern. Pin and stitch squares together in rows of three, taking 5mmm seam allowances. Press seam allowances open. With seams matching, pin the three rows together.

    Step 2

    Stitch the three rows together taking 5mm seam allowances. Press seam allowances open. Cut a rectangle 34cm x 34cm out of wadding and pin to back of patchwork square. Embroider bead or sequin the squares to your liking. Pin trim to right side of fabric 5mm in from every edge with the bottom of the trim facing the centre of the rectangle. Cut two rectangles 34cm x 34cm for the back and press under and stitch a 1.5cm hem across one long edge of each back. With right sides together, lay backs on top of front so hemmed edges overlap. Pin and stitch around outer edges. Turn right side out and press. Insert a 12 inch cushion pad.
