A holiday cushion finished in a flash!

Yesterday I showed you how to make the front of a cute Snowman cushion using a few fabric scraps backed with HeatnBond Featherlite fusible web. Here’s the link to the free Snowman design by Wendi Ganz of ShinyHappyWorld.com Now let’s finish the cushion.

Cushion Back

  • Sew a narrow double-fold hem on 1 long edge of each 7½” x 10½” cushion back piece.

Sew a double-fold hem on 2 long edges of back fabric.

  • Overlap the 2 pieces so you end up with a 10½” square.

Overlap back pieces to make a 10½”square.

  • Place cushion front and back right sides together.
  • Using a fabric marker, draw a line to mark the seam allowance on each corner.
  • Trace around a small circle (I used a coin) to make a seam line for a rounded corner.

  •  Stitch all around the outside edges, following the curved lines on the corners.
  •  Trim excess fabric from corners.
  •  Turn cushion right side out and press.

Cushion Form

  • Cut (2) 10½” squares from white cotton fabric for the cushion form cover.
  •  Place the squares right sides together.
  •  Draw lines to mark the rounded corners the same as you did for the cushion.

  • Turn right sides out.
  • Stuff with Fairfield Poly-fil premium fiber fill.
  • Stitch the opening closed by hand or machine.
  • Place the cushion form inside the cushion. You might have to add a little more stuffing in the corners to fill them out.
