Cushion covers by Hand

Q-Please tell me about how to do fancy cushion covers by hand at home.

A- Thank you for your query and from this I have done a page on sewing by hand describing some of the various stitches used.

There are some lovely materials in India and decorating your cover can be done with different materials in a patchwork or applique idea if you like this. This could then have additional decoration using sequins, buttons, braid or stitching with different coloured threads. You could combine a few ideas on plain fabric as well and these can all be done by hand.

I will be adding more pages covering some ways of decorating cushions in the future.

When you have completed your cushion please show your hand sewing skills on the Cushion Gallery. Hope to see your finished cover soon.
