How to make a cushion cover by hand
1 – 1½ hours
- Two pieces of material
- Cushion inner

1. Cut material to size and pin in place
Start by cutting out two large pieces of your chosen material – it should be around 1½ inches wider than your cushion inner all the way around.

Next, take a needle and thread and sew the two pieces of material together on three sides with small stitches. Sew an inch into the fourth side at each corner and leave the rest open.
3. Turn it inside out
Next, turn your cushion cover inside out. You should be able to see it taking shape by now!
4. Attach VELCRO® Brand Stick On for Fabrics Tape

Fold the open edge over slightly and then stick the hook tape on one side and the loop tape on the other.

Your homemade cushion cover is almost finished… Now is the time to insert your cushion inner.
